There are very similar generic ones which fit if the plastic is cut away on the motherboard. But was more asking about finding the original connectors.
Indeed, I'm talking about the originals too, or at least a modern equivalent.

Re: 520ST PSU Remake

OK, so it's finished and happily powering my 520ST 😁 IMG_20190420_152034.jpg IMG_20190420_154511.jpg IMG_20190420_154529.jpg Project over, what would I say are the gotchas? Well, in all honesty, the worst part was the top half of the case. My decision to print @ .3mm bit me down the line, as the res...

Re: PSU connector ?

Oddly, I was on the verge of asking the very same question, as I have a brand new Meanwell PSU that I want to use for any testing I do, just to be sure I have good power, as stuff like the PAK and IDE interface seem to be a bit susceptible to poor PSUs. I'm going to have a look, I'll measure the pin...

Re: 520ST PSU Remake

Hmm, suspect my change to .3mm has had a side effect in that the top vents are really hard to clean the support structure out of. Still, you live and learn, this is probably the largest most complex piece I've yet printed, so first go was always going to be a try out. It is cleaning up ok, just taki...

Re: 520ST PSU Remake

Looks great RJ. How long dud it take to design it? I'll be honest Phil, I can't take credit for the design, through discussions with various other people I was directed to it on Thingiverse, there is a link early on in the article.

Re: 520ST PSU Remake

And some more pics. Top and bottom together: IMG_20190419_092406.jpg And the two parts fit together very nicely :) IMG_20190419_092355.jpg The top half still requires the vent holes and 'flash' to be cleaned up.
