Converting Dell 7000814 Server Power Supplies

I just posted a build thread for a complete conversion of a Dell 7000814 power supply. It's at There's not much new here except sources for parts and a few tips, but it does pull together into one place a lot of information scattered all over several threads in this forum. These power supplies are cheap on eBay and elsewhere. If you need a power supply, take a look at this thread.

Astec DS850-3

Sorry to put this here as I have only just joined and not sure how to start new thread etc. Also just a one off response in thanks for info gained from this site.

DS850-3 Server Pwr Supply

Astec or Emerson 850W 12V 70A power supply with fans.

To get it working stand alone:

A1 connect to pin A6 (=3V3SB Return)

B2 910 ohm W to pin C6 (=3V3SB Return)

B4 connect to pin B6 (=3V3SB Return)

Resistor from B2 to C6 sets the output voltage. Higher R gives lower output voltage.
Lower R gives higher voltage but may trip overvoltage. 910ohm gives 13.7V.

Tested OK at >35A.

Bought a used Dell Poweredge 2800 930W PSU on ebay. PN AA23290, 930W, 75.7A on the +12 rail, about $30 shipped. Used the pinout for a similar unit found here and it worked like a charm.

This is the pinout I used:
