Just plucked this bad boye out of a Dell XPSS 2720 AIO.

It's 'rated' for 260W, but has 2 of 12v rails, each individually rated at 16A, and a 15W 5vSB rail. Seems fun!

Size is a svelte 7"x1.25"x3", but does not include a fan or plug.

Grab yours on Ebay, just make sure and get the 260W one, not the 240W one: You want P/N 9T4G0.

Below, you see the 12V mobo connector, the ATX 12V (the pair of which each get 1 of the 12V rails), a fan connector, an LED connector, and the 3-pin AC plug connector.

Wouldn't this need a side blower fan?

Having two 12V rails each rated for 16A does NOT mean the PSU can handle 2x16=32A.
There is something called "combined" 12V rating, which probably is less than 260/12~21A for this PSU.

Oh, totally. But we are into modifying hardware, here. I stated in the titular post that it's rated 260W... I'm thinking some of us more experienced modders can squeak a whole lot more out of it, with better cooling and thickened copper traces.

It's crazy I've been sitting on this for 2 years, but I finally got around to rewiring this.
ATX12v from the Dell PSU directly to my 160XT, for powering the board (x97 ITX, i7-4770).
Dell proprietary plug, REM shorted to GND, and the other pins adapted to PCIe 6+2Pin (and 5v left isolated). Plugged into the trusty old 1080 Mini.

Up and running!
