So I bought 2 PSUs for 2 bucks each at a school surplus sale. They are both antec TRUEPOWER 550W non-modular PSUs. there were just boxes of these things. they looked nice and they weren't dusty... I just thought i might use them for a scrapyard build and I got 2 just in case one was dead.
they seem to be discontinued, but heres a link to them on newegg they look just like the pictures: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371020&cm_re=truepower_550-_-17-371-020-_-Product
newegg says its 80 plus bronze, although i cant seem to find any indication of that on the actual power supply (mine or the pictures on newegg) and it looks like these went for around $90???
I asked a guy rummaging around the boxes if they even worked and if he knew where they came from. He said that they were just pulled from computers that the university got rid of, and that most of them should work.
so what do you guys think?? should I put these things anywhere near a computer? and also is there a way I can test them to see if they work correctly??
