    As others have said: You do NOT need it for a Ryzen 5 3600. No way. No how. It's only a 4-core, 65W TDP CPU.

    You would only maybe need to EPS12V connectors if you were using a Ryzen 9 CPU with...

    But that Optiplex doesn't COME WITH a discrete graphics card.

    One can argue: It's has a PCIe slot, so that's a potential upgrade path. But then again... Dell.

    It doesn't matter. A Dell Optiplex motherboard's BIOS isn't going to give the end user much power.

    The only thing wrong with your PSU is it's old. It was a good unit in its time.

    Fan still works, right?

    If it's age worries you, replace it.

    Good lord... Why?

    It's not only an old PSU, but it wasn't a very good PSU to begin with!

    Reviving an old 200W PSU like this just isn't worth it.

    I've seen Radio Shack Project Kits...

    There is no way to have the capacitors in the PSU and do the same job as the capacitors in the cables.

    The softer plastics don't meet UL's requirements for flammability. They also don't fit well after time because they tend to "stretch" and "deform".

    No. You definitely damaged something using the wrong cables. :(

    Fortunately, you can replace it under warranty.

    Yeah. That SATA is +12V and ground only and I have no idea what it would be used for.



    And it's that way with ATX12VO. There's a four pin connector on the motherboard with +12V, +5V, +3.3V...

    Did you really think "+12V Only" meant that all wires and connectors throughout the PC would be +12V only? ;)

    Correct!

    Where have you been? ;)

    ATX12VO is +12V only from the PSU to the motherboard. The DC to DC for +3.3V and +5V is now on the motherboard and standard SATA connectors are still used.

    99.9% of the time, I have to have my ear right up to the back of the PSU to hear buzzing.

    But to some people, that's too much. :D

    You took a poor picture of the primary cap. The markings you're looking for are on the side of the cap facing the back of the PSU, towards the PFC coil.
