CORRECTconnector pinout is correct, though i have seen different coloring code for this dell supply, on my PS there was no TFSC wire at all -empty spotAPPROVED
ERROR FIXEDDell Precision 610 (and maybe other Dell workstations of similar age) also uses a very similar 24pin P1 connector, but according to the service manual, pins 17-24 are -5 VDC (white), -5 VDC (white), +5 VDC (red), +5 VDC (red), +5 VDC (red), TFSC (brown), +3.3 VDC (blue/white) and common (black) respectively, instead of N/C, +5 VDC (red), +5 VDC (red), +5 VDC (red), TFSC (brown), +5 VDC (red) and +3.3 VDC (blue/white).

CORRECTPlease forget about my previous report saying that the pins are not correct with reference to the Dell service manual. It seems that the Dell service manual is wrong.
