There are 3 way to check whether the power supply is labeled correctly:
- Check the amperage on the +12 rail
- Check the price, if the power supply claim that they are 500 watts, the price should be range from RM 350(~USD 90) to RM 500(~USD 140). If the price different is very must, then you should becareful
