The power button on my Dell Dimension 5100 started flashing yellow a couple of days ago. Upon further investigation I opened the computer and found a AUX PWR led glowing in yellow. I'm taking a chance on believing that the PSU is faulty and that I need to get a replacement.
The Dell Dimension 5100 are supposedly using nonstandard DELL PSU and uses ATX type PSU.
1) What I'm wondering, can I replace the PSU with a better PSU from Chieftech?
2) I'm worried about the fan position on the PSU that I've investigated. The Dell PSU has the fan on the back while the Chieftech one ejects the heat to the left.
3) Another thing I don't seem to find out is if the wires/cables in the new PSU will be long enough to fit in the old computer?
4) Will it be a problem for the motherboard that put a larger PSU in the computer?
