175w PSU with a proprietary connector :mad:

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My little brother has an old compaq pc, with a 1.8Ghz Pentium 4, he wants to play minecraft and some old games, but it has really bad onboard video that can't run it, so I found an old FX 5200 in my old pentium 3 rig and put it in and he's playing right now.

According to this psu calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

a 209w is recommended but 159w is minimum so I should be ok?
But if I put in some capacitor aging since it's really old, it goes to up to 200w

AND I wanted to put my 2.8Ghz P4 in it (the rig it's coming from has the same onboard video and doesn't have an agp slot -.-) which makes the minimum go up even more.


Is this calculator I used accurate?
Is there any way I could use a standard PSU? If I took the wires out of the connectors and put the standard PSU's wires in the proprietary connector, matching the colors?

I think you should be ok.

The 1.8 GHz P4 Willamette and 2.8 GHz P4 Northwood have almost exactly the same TDP (66.7W vs 68.4W)

There's no guarantee that the color scheme is the same as the standard ATX one. Ie, yellow could be +3.3V instead of +12V, green could be -12V instead of PW_ON, etc.


I have no idea what the power consumption of the FX5200 is.
