PSU for HP XW8600 workstation


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I had the 800W PSU on my HP XW8600 dual xeon machine failing the other day.

Without knowing too much about them, I brought home a CX850M.

After installing, the machine does not start at all, but beeps instead. No fans nothing. The warning beeps indicate a power issue.


Reading a bit more it seems that it is not compatible to an ATX PSU, but some other stuff like EPS SSI?


Is there one that will work with this machine?


Thank you in advance and apologies for ignorance


PS. I already checked connections etc.

I suspect the HP XW8600 needs a special PSU and no generic PSU such as the CX850M will work.


After a quick Google I found http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/upgrading-power-supply/td-p/1232145 which supports this theory.


I guess your best option is to look on eBay where I found http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181751018502. I also just found https://www.amazon.com/HP-Supply-Workstations-444411001-444411-001/dp/B0038L9G3A
