A power supply is *never* to strong. To week yes, but never to strong.

The supply will only cater for what the device attached is drawing.

ie: a 4 what device, connected to a 8 what supply will only draw 4 whats from the psu.

When a supply is to week, they get very hot, shutdown and cause stability issues. Most will fail and let out the magic smoke.
