Converted hp server to normal atx case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I converted a HP Prolaint ML530 G2 server case to a normal ATX case while still using the servers original PSU's and main case fans

What I had to do to make this work

1. The motherboard tray is not made for a ATX motherboard.
So I made my own tray out of a old atx case using a high speed air cutter

2. The PSU's in the case are anything but standard ATX
and I could not find the pinout for them anywhere so I had to
find out what they all did myself.

Here is my pinout of the power back-panel





Here is a image from when I was testing the power panel with a old MB



And here it is all together again with a MA790XT-UD4P MB in it
