That makes sense. You have a 5V 40A line (2 pins), a 12V 25A line and a 3.3V 40A line. I Googled the PS number and found a circuit diagram here from someone who made a 115Vac / 400Hz inverter out of one.

Wish we could do the same for some of our other finds!

Grounding the short pin and the pwr on pins gets the fan roaring like a 747! It also produces blade voltages as follows:-

Blade 1 - chassis gnd
Blade 2 - +3.7V (3.3V)
Blade 3 - +12.82 (12V)
Blades 4,5,6 - gnd
Blade 7,8 - +5.48V (5V)

I still have two concerns. According to a sticker on a supply on a web site (it is not on mine) the Status LED is supposed to be steady green if all is well. Mine is not lit. There is only a green AC pwr LED.

Considering that there is only one blade for 12V, I wonder about its current capacity. There is nothing on the PSU to show what the current capability is and I couldn't find anything by googling. It is a 750W supply so it has to be capable of a lot of current from somewhere!

Anyway, some progress has been made. Next step is to test it with a load. I will report back.
