Yes, the PRIME-FANLESS-TX-700. Which specs are you looking at? Not sure what the specs mean.

Specifications, like how many amps(especially for the +12V rail that will power the motherboard and CPU). If the components need more current(amps) than the PSU can deliver, performance and reliability will suffer. Better to err on the side of too much vs too little(so the PSU can deliver all the computer needs, without being stressed to the max). Does the graphics card have a power connection? That adds to the load. Do you have lots of hard drives(my rig has 6 internal drives)? That adds to the load.

My feeling is anything above 50A should be fine. Some split things up and give 2 or 3 rails of maybe 20 amps per rail and those are not so great for our needs Of course, I'm no expert, just experienced. If an expert counters my opinions, I'm okay with that
