Odd Powersupply size

I have an old server case (supermicro sc801) that I'm rebuilding, but the power supply is an ETASIS EPR-2305 dual redundant 300w x 2. The PS is an odd size... a little more than twice the size of a standard PC PS. The power supply is no longer strong enough to handle "modern" MB's and CPU's (yup, I tried) but because of the odd size, I can't just put in a more powerful stock PS. Does anyone make a more powerful PS that would fit the dimensions of the EPR-2305? I know that ETASIS make (made?) a 400W+400W version (the 2405) also, but that wouldn't seem to add much.

  1. It may be time to upgrade your case so you can use standard parts.
  2. ^+1 jsc maybe a new case but if the case is that big maybe pull a mcgyver with a new power supply

    Yeah, I'd like to replace the PS, if I can find one that fits. The case is as tall as a full tower and opens on both sides... one side is all for drives, and the other is for the MB and cards... lots of fan mounts for cooling, too.

    Hi, I'm in the same boat, did you ever come up with a replacement?
  5. That just looks like two ATX power supplies in some kind of mounting bracket, kind of like this: http://www.iec.net/dsk9003.html

    Have you taken it apart just to see if it's two regular ATX power supplies maybe plugged into some backplane that know how to switch to the other one if one fails? Maybe you can replace them with regular PSUs?
