I have an 2 old computers one is 1.2 ghz and one is like 650mhz the problem is that the powersupply (400watt )in the 650 is cloged but so it duznt spinn (altho it is not trying very hard /maybe temp driven speed?/and it has been run with no fan for a while) how ever my question is do you think the 400watt psu will be able to replace the RILLy small like 175watt one out of the 1.2 ghz computer with out overheating with no fan? and if yes i have a big 120mm fan (3 speed)that can spinn rilly slowly and quietly do u think that will work?

WEll, I have seen computers run for years without the PSU Fan spinning. Wouldnt recommend it though. My recommendation is to take your 400 Watt PSU from the 650 computer, and blow it out with some compressed air. See if you get all that stuff outta there. Just remember if your going to change out PSU's make sure they fit in the case properly (Dimensions) and have the proper connections you need (IE: Motherboard power)

the 650 was from a kfc or something so it is grease or something the cables are the same but the cases are diferent but i wasnt going to use that case n e ways do u think the 120mm fan at like 700rpm will do a good job of cooling it?

Some manufacturers have proprietary designed PSUs which are non ATX form factor, the case of the PSU could be of a different size, or the 20 pin connector could have a different pin out. If you let us know what the make and model of the computer is and the make and model of the PSUs we can determine if it will be compatible.

Another option here would be to purchase another PSU for the computer, that shouldn't be too much of an investment for a new to you computer. The PSU is the heart of most computers, it's worth while knowing yours is going to work properly. There are computers out there that I will not mention...emachine...which have a reputation for a combination failure, if the PSU goes out it usually takes the motherboard out as well.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
