Dell Poweredge 500sc

Mr. Birchall came in yesterday with a Dell Poweredge 500sc server with a faulty motherboard. It was our job to see if a third party motherboard such as an Asus would work.  We took apart the computer and found it was a socket 370 mobo, an older standard. However, we also discovered that Dell uses a proprietary ribbon front panel connector, however, we were in luck. I found a chart of the pins here. Once we found that it was possible, we searched for 370 motherboards on Newegg first, and we came up with these  DFI ones. We also found an abit one on a site called Global computer, here. In addition, I found what seemed like the actual motherboard here, although the price is a bit steep at $595. So, we found it was possible to do a mobo transplant, but only a few socket 370 motherboards are still for sale, and the front panel pins would require some modifications.
