    g4 PSU question (of compatibility)
    hi, i picked up a g4, it appears to be a sawtooth, of which i already have one i use at home. but the 22-pin psu on the g4 is dead - the dead psu was ACBEL-9841-291-REV B (126W,max i think).

    the psu i have in my working sawtooth is DELTA-DPS-338BB-A-REV.01 (338W).

    i remembered i had a shell of an old dell, i checked that psu. it's a 22-pin as well - ANTEC-PP303X (300W).

    am i able to use the ANTEC in the sawtooth as a replacement for the ACBEL ?

    can anyone advise ? i'm not that familiar with the do's and don'ts on this!

    thank you.

    Take a look at the main power connectors to see if the wires are the same. If both 22-pin connectors have the same colors in the same places, I dont' see why it wouldn't work.

    Don't hold me responsible if it doesn't work!

    thanks for that - geez i did need sleep last night ! the antec has 20-pins! DOH!

    ok can anyone recommend a psu that would work in a g4, cheap as possible, like $50 or less ? the delta and acbel's go for closer to $100, on bay, etc.

    I tried to do a mod to a standard 20pin ATX psu, but it didn't work, as my G4 has 22 pins also.

    I think your best bet would be to find a used psu from a G4 on eBay. If you go this route, make sure it's the Rev. B (or 2) PSU for a G4 Sawtooth.
