My take on the HP server power supply.

Here is my take on the server power supply.

I removed the breakout board, figured out which pins need to be shorted to make it turn on, then mounted a bind post to some angle aluminum I had laying around then mounted it on the power supply so that everything looks nice.

I also added (2) 1/4 watt 100ohm resistors between the fan and the psu so that the fan turns at a lower speed and isn't so noisy.

All in all it's a great setup for under $25.

I'm going to start modifying my second power supply and I'll take pictures and document. I was going to make them into a 24v ps, but after reviewing the process I decided that removing the safety features of one of the power supplies wasn't worth the risk so I'm going to live with 600 watts on my PL8.
