I've got what I think to be a dead PSU in a Dell PowerEdge 840. I'd slap in a standard ATX PSU to test that assumption out, but it looks like Dell made these damn thing with an 10 pin proprietary power plug for the board that serves the HDDs. I see tons of Dell 840 power supplies for sale online, but anyone aware if there is a normal brand PSU that has this same plug? I'm assuming its proprietary to Dell but hoping to be told otherwise. Thanks for the help in advance. I seem to recall seeing these on older system instead of the 20 or 24pin plugs for the motherboard... Have they revived this plug specifically for their HDD backboards?
