Would you trust this PSU?

Building a headless server out of a Ryzen 2600.

Had this PSU lying around (likely came from a Dell Dimension 5150). It can support 14A on the 12V (168W) which should be enough for the CPU.

Don't see an 80+ Bronze certification... wondering if this would be safe to use long term.

This Dell unit has seen 2-3 years at most.

Never thought of it like that.
I always hear people complaining about crappy Dell PSUs so I wasn't sure.

I'd buy a new power supply, they are not expensive on a decent sale.
