Hi guys, I am in the process of looking for a new front panel USB 3.0/Power Button that is compatible with my desired PSU. My current panel is about 6 inches/15.25 cm long and includes 2 USB slots, a headset and microphone jack and the power button. I would just buy the same one, but it is actually attached my current nonmodular, 300W PSU that came with my pre-built PC and I suspect that it's not sold on the market. I found a page on E-bay that includes some individual parts for my PC, but I can't seem to find the exact pannel. Is there another panel I can buy? More details below.

EBay Page that lists several parts: https://www.ebay.com/b/Acer-Computer-Case-Accessories-Toolkits/51064/bn_627542

What the front of the case looks like: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Aspire-TC-605-UB11-OEM-Desktop-Front-Bezel-42-3JR10-001-60-3JR10-001A-ER/302412152405?hash=item46692b3e55:g:rN0AAOSwBpxZjbwt

And finally, the PSU I'm trying to get: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Bronze-Certified-Modular-CP-9020102-NA/dp/B01B72W0A2/ref=zg_bs_1161760_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=Y27FHX08KYDBSX0W8FF2#

Power buttons don't typically connect to the PSU, they typically connect to the motherboard (because the pins are the ones that need the signal). When it's not the case, you're dealing with something extremely proprietary, meaning your options will be very limited. And if the PSU is proprietary, you won't be able to just replace it with a better, Corsair PSU either. Unfortunately, pre-builts that aren't made of aftermarket parts tend to be giant headaches to upgrade.

Ok so a bit of an important update. The Power button and front panel connections are NOT connected to the PSU, they're connected to the Mother Board for sure. I thought they were because the last time I opened my case, the actual cables were very hard to spot and differentiate from each other because of the spaghetti-like cable management present in this PC. Both the PSU cables and connections between the Power Button, Disk Drive and HDD are all tied together via some zipties.

It's looking increasingly like this is an issue of the PSU being old, low quality and low power that's causinh issues for my front panel.
