Get a multimeter.

The ratings of the rectifying bridge, primary switchers, and schottkys can tell us a great deal about a power supply's capabilities.

We might be able to identify the base platform, if so then yes we could. If you wanted to get technicall I'm sure we could at least identify the quality of the parts.

Most all decent PSU's have a thermal or load regulated fan. If it has a switch, more than likely junk IMO.

the antec TPQ-1200OC has a fan speed over ride nob.


and a multimeter would tell you next to nothing other than voltages not wattage.
you should check the internal components, or at least post a picture of the unit/internals for one of our many power supply guru's to identify.

Usually the heavier the better, 2x 6-pin usually says it's around 550w+ range.

Their is always an exception or 2.
