sorry but I have to, the thing uses proprietary connections, so only a psu from dell will work, so not possible unless you get a million chinese adapters on aliexpress perhaps

"I know a lot about a little, but a little about a lot"

Note that I am a student so what I say is based on what I read, and may not be the case for everyone.

I am not the best technician, so don't make fun

actually, just checked the manual, everything uses normal layouts, pcie x16, 24pin atx, fan connectors, here is the manual with all the ports and hat they do, check page 8:

Think it will fit in a normal ATX case?

well, the odds are,it uses its own standoffs, so probably not, and the psu is also a custom form factor, so remove any standoffs if possible, before putting it in

any case would work honestly, and would be a great upgrade, the 465x perhaps, do you want rgb, if not the 4000d airflow
