Use of SC5400LX and S5520SCR

Hello,

due to a mistake we ordered the wrong server chassis. We have now the server chassis SC5400LX and the workstation mainboard S5520SCR. The workstation mainboard needs two 8-pin CPU power connetors, whereas there exists only one in the server chassis. Is it possible to change the power supply of the server chassis, so that the server chassis and the mainboard fits together? If it is so, is there a recommended "Intel" power supply which is suitable for server chassis and mainboard?

Thanks in advance

Even if you got one of the power supplies from http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5520sc/sb/CS-030490.htm , there's no guarantee that the standoffs are going to match. The SC5400 was designed for the 5000-series boards, not the 5500-series boards. Different processors and everything.
