    Default Used PSU Corsair HX1200

    I managed to buy a used Corsair HX1200 from an unknown seller. He didn`t give me any receipt or warranty documents except for the box and cables. I tested the psu in games, everything seems ok. I know it is too late because I already bought it but I am afraid now that the the psu could have been used for mining. It wouldn`t be a tragedy if the psu fails but I don`t want to damage the other components which I just bought. What do you think, should I worry? Sorry if this subject has already been discuseed.

    The HX1200 is rated to operate with full 1200W output at 50C. I'm sure it'll be fine.

    Thanks for the feedback. I hope so, because my rig was very expensive (10980XE, RTX 2080TI) and apart the ssd`s the psu is the only second hand part in my rig. I know I should have bought a new one but it wasn`t in stock on the local resellers, and I thought for the half of price I could also make a good deal buying from this person. But I then read that a faulty psu could damage other components in a pc and I began to worry.

    Only true of cheap power supplies that are without over-voltage protection or have excessive ripple.
