Trying to find out if my dell power supply is standard or proprietary

I am trying to figure out if my power supply in my xps 730 is standard or dell proprietary.
Model: H1000e - 01
p/n: HP-s1k03a001 lf

I have read the same number of posts in different forums telling me that it is proprietary and not proprietary.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    If your Psu's pins differ from this example then its a dellup, or proprietary Psu,

  2. Thank you for the quick response.
    I will take a look at the pins.
  3. I had a look and it was very close, I noticed there are two red lines in the in the first +5vdc on and two orange cables going into the second +3.3vdc on the side without the clamp.
    Thank you again for the help.
  4. Hi

    I did a quick search for Dell documentation for XPS which said the PSU is rated at 1 KW

    does it use a standard IEC connector on its power cable/socket in PSU ?
    Some high power Dells use a larger connector for their power supplies

    Have you checked with Dell for the cost of a genuine replacement against the cost of a good quality 1 KW PSU

    In UK cost starts at about £100 but reliable brands £150 to £200 ( UK pounds)

  5. Hi,
    It is a standard IEC connector.
    The issue is kind of opposite, the power supply is good, I am putting in a new mother board, and do not want to pay for a new power supply on top if it if I can at all avoid it.

    Thank you for your help
  6. Hi

    You can get a power supply tester which checks the voltages on 20/24 pin motherboard connector, ATX 4/8 12V, PCIe 12V (graphics card connectors)
    molex, floppy and SATA connectors which will give a good indication of compatibility.

    also look for any non standard connectors not mentioned above.

    UK examples of testers
