    Might be but for what Computer?

    Because we're talking about 100A on 12V, if something goes wrong, it really goes wrong. And there's a...

    Depends how you use them and how the protections are implemented.

    In some cases you can use them but they blow up in other cases they shut down far before reaching max. load.

    Depends on the design of the PSU.

    There are "230VAC" PSU that work with less than that - but not at 100% Load or for more than a couple of seconds.
