    Dell Optiplex GX270 Standard ATX 20 pin PSU or not?

    So, all indications seem to say that my Dell Optiplex gx270 is a standard ATX power supply (well, at least the 20 pin connector). A couple members are also running this model with dc-dc solutions but I have yet to hear back in any of the PM's I've sent. The Dell forums site seems to also support the 20 pin standard ATX config as several members have replied there that they use standard power supplies in thier rigs.
    I took the plunge and ordered a 220w DSATX yesterday with a brainstem.

    Can anyone else offer confirmation on the Optiplex gx270 20 pin connector being Standard ATX or not?

    Also, I am adept at using a Fluke, but am not sure how to meter the pin out voltages on the power supply. Could someone more "computer savvy" give a little tutorial on which pins to meter across to confirm voltages (without frying the MB or PSU)?

    Thanks and Cheers
