Reuse old PSU?

I have an Enermax 720w psu (modular) that's been a workhorse for me for years.

I'm in the middle of planning a new build, and I'm considering dropping it in the new box. It's quiet and has been rock solid for so long, I'm wondering if it's nuts to consider reusing it.

I'm not expecially tight on money, but what's the worse that could happen, right?
