I have some small form factor PCs that use power supplies with odd shapes. Since I manage these PCs in bulk (I'm up to about 60 of them), I want to know how to find replacement parts in the inevitable case of a power supply failure. Right now these are fairly new to us, and so I haven't had any failures yet, but I want to be prepared when I do.
There are actually two varieties I am concerned about here, but I also want to know about how to identify these power supplies and valid replacement parts in the more general case.
The two power supplies are as follows:
- HP 437352-001. It's like a section was removed from a normal supply, but a standard size fan still sits at the back. The power supply here sits over the hard drive, so that fan can cool both parts.
- The other is a low-power (150W) power supply for a FoxConn-branded machines we have (example of the computer -- couldn't find a good image of the supply itself). It long and skinny, rather than cubish like a typical power supply, and almost looks like a server power supply.
So the question is, how can I find out more about these atypical power supplies? What name (read: google keyword) should I use when talking about them? Where or what kinds of places can I look for replacements?
