    It will run but not a good idea.

    Also, 20A on each 12V rail is not equivalent to 40A. It should be lesser. Check the side of your PSU to determine the max power output from the 12V rails combined.

    Should work fine... if the physical size is correct...
    It would be good to know where to find the model number and specs, or who is the seller.
    Any reason why you want that one, over others?
