I have a S5500WB motherboard but nned a psu for it, I know the board is stated to require a
Intel Corp FSR1690PS 650 watt psu, I have found one but its a little out of my price range.
I also found a Delta TDPS-600CB C 600W 1U Power Supply for Intel Server SR1560SF a lot
cheaper. My questions are.
1) will it have enough power for the board?
2) If not are there any other psu that will work with this board?
Comparing the power subsystem from the SR1690WB from http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5500wb/sb/CS-030206.htm Intel� Server Board S5500WB — Technical product specification (TPS) and the power subsystem for the SR1560SF from http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5400SF/sb/CS-028352.htm Intel� Server Board S5400SF — Technical product specification , it looks like the board may pull more amps on the +5V and +12V V1 and V2 rails than the 1560 can provide.
I would not recommend using the 1560 power supply in place of the 1690.
