What model of Seasonic? Ideally, the first post in this thread, or somewhere, should maintain a list of known, guaranteed ok PSUs that one can use with the adapters. One problem with nekochan is a lot of relevant info is incredibly fractured, and finding it often difficult due to the way the search function works. Infact, even searching for this thread brought up a different thread first. :D

The exact model is: Seasonic SS-500ET
But any similar modern PSU around 500Watts (combined) should work juust fine..
And my Fuel is loaded (V12, 800MHz, 2x DVD Drives, 2x HDDs).
Just pick a "good" brand and no need to worry about the 3.3V or 5V max load of the original Fuel's WTX PSU.
I know the max wattage one is able to draw from these 3.3V and 5V lines of the modern PSUs is a bit lower than the original, but the machine doesn't consume such high amperage from these lines anyway.

Hope this helps.

Thanks!! I found two variants, the Seasonic SS-500ET-T3 and the Seasonic SS-500ET-F3, which one is your unit?

Anyone have any other suggestions?

I can't say cause I got it without any sort of manuals etc..
Just a box with the unit.
This link points to where I got it from: https://www.ekos.gr/product/ss_500et_bulk92
At least all the specs are there (in Greek though :P)

The F3 has 4x SATA, the T3 has 6x SATA, so it looks like you have the F3. Thanks!

I'm wondering whether the Thermaltake Toughpower units I have would work ok...

If you have some spare psu available, testing would be very quick, I think

I strongly believe that any 500W PSU from a reputable manufacturer will work fine.
Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, Thermaltake, EVGA are some examples of such makers.
