Summary: I bought this power supply as an external source of power for my current power demanding video card and future peripheral cards without taxing my current PSU and prevent from damaging my computer in the long run. I did a paper clip test to see if it is DOA and it was.

-the SATA connectors were postioned weirdly because its plugged in upside which I found a bit of a hassle because I wanted to connect my DVD SATA and my HD...
