    Hi all,

    I want to change out the 250 watt PS on Dimension 8100.
    That is the case that swivels out the PS and uses a proprietary
    PS. I want 300 watts minimum.

    Anyone know where I can get one for this beast??

    I have serious doubts that anyone ever made a proprietary 300w PS for the
    Dimension 8100. The Precision 330 has the same chassis. Possibly its PS has
    higher rating... Ben Myers

    The Dimension 8100 is the last model that used a proprietary PS. You may
    be right that no one has made an upgrade for it.

    Check the PS label closely. The earlier 8100 systems did indeed have the
    same 300w PS as the Precision, or even the sister system GX400. Best I can
    recall, they initially began with a 300w and then mysteriously contained
    250w PS units near the end of life for the model. ?

    That 24-pin connector is proprietary, but I believe PC power and cooling did
    offer a replacement. Guessing it wasn't cheap, however. Okay, via their
    selector, this is what they offer for the Dimension 8100:

    Again, verify what you have before you spend the bucks.......

    Why bother. It is very conservatively rated and equal to any other vendors
    350-400W PS.

    I wouldn't spend the money on a machine that has ZERO value.
