Hi gang, I am a fan of Lenovo's series of SFF desktops. I currently have a 57p (9196-A1U) with an MSI GT 610 low profile graphics card HDMI out), SDD and additional 2.5 secondary drive, DVD drive managed thru a controller card.

The computer currently goes to an Onkyo 626 AV receiver, to my Vizio 55 inch TV.

Typically they come with a very slim 280 watt PSU. I would like to bump my PSU into the 300 to 325ish range. (without going external)... Any suggestions? Modifiers??

Thank you Tomshardware for providing a forum for us.

I cant find any power supplies using the model# as listed. Can you let us know the machine type exactly as its printed from the sticker on the back.
otherwise you will probably either have an SFX style or TFX. You can view those on Newegg by chosing computer hardware on the left> power supplies from the window> power supplies (again) on the left. Now on the left and under TYPE, click the 'More+' and put check marks next to SFX, SFX12, and TFX12 respectively.

Next we have to hope that Lenove did not use a propritary PSU which would use a non-standard motherbd connector.

Product ID S/N: 9196A1U LKLAGNY

ACBEL Power Supply Info:
ACBEL Part Number: PC7032
FRU: 41A9740
P/N 41A9740 (same number as FRU)

I believe the form factor is actually referred to as a BTX form factor motherboard.

The power supply currently is 280 watt.

Thanks for your help and consideration.
