And yes, it's still working.
Yup, same PPFC series - mine were probably an intermediate series that used the sawblade-type heatsinks from the 300W units, but are otherwise very similar. The only downside today is that there's no 6-pin PCIe graphics connector, but this was from the AGP era, so I can't really complain. I could try to solder one in, but it's only 250W anyway, so no real point in running a big GPU with it - a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCIe adapter cable should be fine if needed for some PCIe cards with modest power requirements.
