The power supply is nonstandard(WTX with ATX plugs).
Use an ATX power supply with a dell computer, you will get lots of smoke, and leave you to flush the destroyed parts down the toilet. :( :(
I heard about this in some USENET thread about a guy who upgrades the power supply in his dell and it now blows the fuses.
Good thing I read about this before I decided to upgrade.

That would only be a problem if you didn't know what you where doing in the first place.

later opened my dell, and came to find out you were right. Good job finding that out.
