have a motherboard that came out of a slimline PC, Im trying to move it into a new case as it is very difficult to locate a power supply for the slimline pc. Here is where my problem lies, with a normal power supply the connector is a larger 24pin connector than the board has, is there a inverter that can be bought in order to make this possible or will i have to find a slimline power supply

If you're feeling ambitious you could splice the connector from the slimline to the wires coming out of the regular psu. If I were doing this I would first map the wires by colour from both psu's seperately and see if you have a likely match. You can assume that, say, a red wire from one is the same output as a red wire on the other. or use a multimeter to confirm it. Just don't start cutting wires until you are sure it will work.

Alternately you could continue to use the slimline psu if you can figure out a way to power the mobo by leaving the slimline psu outside the case. Not pretty but it can work.

As I said, if you're feeling adventurous, you could replace the standard psu connector with the slimline mobo connector on the standard psu.

What make and model slimline is this exactly?

What make and model is the standard psu?

Just read dpunisher's link, that works too :crazy:

I linked you to an adapter to use a regular ATX PSU with a motherboard from a slimline.

If you want a slimline PSU, I order them from KDM out of Houston http://www.ebay.com/itm/220W-POWER-SUPPLY-REPLACE-HP-SLIMLINE-5188-7520-AC-BEL-PC6012-PC6034-SHIP-USA-/320966530586?pt=PCA_UPS&hash=item4abb18961a .
