As the Greenface said, while it should work in terms of power, the E6 is too old to be trusted, especially given its build quality and components used.

Correct, that would've been a TNY279PN, to be precise.

I've also seen these blow up in CWT-made Chieftec units too (after about 3 years of service), not just in HEC stuff. So definitely something...

That is 2-series. Xigmatek uses M-series for Tauro 700W only.
Tauro M 600W is another beast entirely, and that uses F-series, AFAIK.
