My PSU crashed in my Studio XPS 435MT. I purchased a replacement OCZ ModXstream-pro 600w. My old PSU does not have pin #14 (blue -12VDC) wire in the 24 pin connector but the new PSU does. What does this wire do and do I need to remove it from the new PSU?
Thanks

You mean the 4 on the 20+4 pin connector? if so you do not need to use/remove it if your mother board is only 20 pin

It's nothing to worry about, don't need to remove it.
Don't need an adapter or Dell compatible psu either.
The -12v rail on the psu isn't going to force power to go where it's not called for.
