If it has 8 pins for motherboard power, it's probably a proprietary Dell something or other.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

A 12 year old, proprietary power supply needs to be chucked, sorry. Saving money should be secondary to ensuring your components don't get busted. Spend $40 or more on a decent PSU, it's worth saving for.

Big mistake.

You must not combine old Power Supplys with modern components. That's asking for trouble and wanting to either destroy the stuff you have or have unnecessary Problems like random reboots, shutdowns, stuff like that.

A Corsair 450W what?  That narrows it down to about four different models.

 

Either way... forget it.  I don't care who makes the PSU.  If it's 10 years+ old and you don't know how to refurbish one yourself, it should be replaced.
