Uncertainty About The Quality of An Already Bought Power Supply

I recently bought a Power Supply thinking it would be adequate for my 312W build. Will this damage my components?

No way to say. There is nothing known about this PSU, so you made a completely blind purchase. It could explode today or run for 5 years, nobody knows.

Return it if possible. Ebay it and take the loss if you can't.

Yes as Orion recommended, try returning it..Maybe you can exchange it for a better unit, even if it means paying more (as you should never skimp on the PSU which is the most important pc component IMO).

Would this be a reliable Power Supply?

Yes. I would not even take the first one you purchased out of the box. Return that thing.
