Default Wanting to convert server power supply

Looking for some help on converting a HP DPS-750AB-3 into a power supply. I haven't found anything specific to the model power supply. From what I've seen with other HP DPS models, bridging pin 33 and 36 will get the power supply to turn on.

Have... You tried bridging those pins?

I'm reasonably confident that's a "common slot" model. I built an adapter board and use a switch across 33 & 36 in series with a 100ohm resistor to turn it on/off. The ones I've built are using the 1200W version.

Yes, the house burnt down ...

Just kidding, I gave it a go. The power supply turned on putting out 12.33v.

I happen to have this lying around from the crypto morning days and thought I might put it to use. I'd love to find shrink wrap or a custom skin for this thing.

Look up DPS-750AB-3A Manual online. Manuallib.com. Although it show 650AB it probably the same. 5V and 12V jumpers. What are you going to use it on?
