Glad it worked for you. I gather some folks have had issues with the Dell, not sure on the details. There's another thread here where someone took a slightly different approach if you're interested:
Yeah, since yours is working I wouldn't mess with it. I meant more that you might be interested in reading rather than implementing. It's possible that the Dell supplies are inconsistent and you got a better one than the guy that had problems.
well, spoke too soon...i can say that i have no issues running games and certain benchmark software however the dell psu shuts down onto protection as soon as i try to run 3dmark fire strike in 4k....oh well...i think i just need to carefully look onto that external psu....looking at corsair 650x, should b enough. I was just wondering if the evga talked about on the thread you sent, has a cap which covers the 24pin mb output so that the psu can be used on its own...i have seen it on the evga website. I could maybe create some psu input on the g20 case without having any hole...need to look at this, however, for the time being, the dell 0y99rr is more than capable to run newest game at 4k resolution (i mean the gtx 1080ti). Will keep updated....
mod in progress....however at present when I plug the corsair rm650x to power the gpu + only use the 180w power supply (no 330w or 230w attached) I get onto all sort of issues....no boot, no hdd, reboot loop, bios resetting certain values which will make the pc non bootable etc....need to find out what the hell is wrong....

you should be using your 230w power brick, as this is the main power brick for the pc, the 180w is only used for the gpu's power.
