Hey all,

I have a secondary computer with a 10 year old Seasonic 850 watt Silver power supply. Its running great but its 10 years old. Should I keep on using or start thinking about a replacement? I am not too concern if the PSU dies. I just don't want a cascading effect and it taking all the other components. Thoughts?

Seasonic is a quality brand PSU that typically has all of its protections working well. So if/when it craps out, it should only do so on itself. :)
