IdeaCentre 700: 10-Pin power supply PSU connector / adapter?

Just bought a new IDEACENTRE 700 - 90ED0009US from Best Buy and I would like to upgrade the anemic 250 watt power supply but noticed I have a 10+4(cpu) pin connection to the motherboard. I have found 24 to 14 pin but nothing of this sort on the boards. Anyone have any idea on adaptors or the pinout of the 10 pin so that I can make my own?

Re: IdeaCentre 700 - 10 Pin Atx Connector?

hi jegillis,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

I don't have the pinouts on the 10pin connector that's used on the IdeaCentre 700 motherboard but I looked around the net and you're right, there's no one selling a lenovo 24pin to 10pin ATX adapter cable yet, however, I have high hopes that this cable should work:

 

PSU Main Power 24-Pin to 18+10-Pin Adapter Cable (30cm)

 

I would recommend you contact the seller though to ensure compatibility.

 

 

Let me know if this works for you.

 

Regards

Re: IdeaCentre 700 - 10 Pin Atx Connector?

I did some digging and it appears that  the gray PS_OK signal line and Purple +5v was removed with a different order on the pins, the keys for the connector are the same so I could just get a 24 to 14 and chop off 4 pins and put the wires in the correct place.

 

 

The wires are as follows

Re: IdeaCentre 700 - 10 Pin Atx Connector?

I tried this as well and could not get it to work.

 

I have a Lenovo 300s, which came with a 10 pin motherboard power connector, 4 pin power connector, and a 200 watt HuntKey PSU.  I bought a 400 watt Kentek TFX power supply and the 24 to 10 pin adapter.  I rearranged to the wires to match the Huntkey.  Unfortunately, the computer would not power on by use of the button.  I tested the Kentek with a mutlimeter with the adapter on (shorted green to black) and confirmed the power supply worked.  

 

I have been researching this the last couple of days and still no luck.  Please let me know if you were able to make it work.

 

Thanks

Same thing here I was unable to get the power supply to start up. The only wire not on the 10 pin that is on the 14 pin is the +5v and power supply ok. The only thing I can figure is that PS on is not pulling down when pressing the switch?

Re: IdeaCentre 700 - 10 Pin Atx Connector?

Well I got it working! I shorted pwr_on and ground in the connector with a paper clip, power button works like normal and I can shut down from windows. Only issue I see with this is you would not want to power any drives as it appears the power supply just stays running and the MB manages the power.

Re: IdeaCentre 700 - 10 Pin Atx Connector?

Had anyone tried the cable from the first response to this post yet? Or has anyone gottenit to work without using a paper clip to short it? I'd just use the paper clip if it was my computer but it's my wife's

Re: IdeaCentre 700 - 10 Pin Atx Connector?

so jerry rigging all capable PSU's is an option. Any other "cleaner" ways going about it ? Any kits out there yet ? I really want a clean setup. I dont want to accidentally shock myself. There has got to be a PSU made by Corsair right ?
