|Power supply label|
|Power connector to board|
|Readynas 1100 system board|
The power supply that came was an exact match for the label, but had a couple of extras.
There was a normal "floppy' cable with 5 and 12 v feeds both wired up, as well as the extra 4 pin P4 booster for +12.
There were 4 pins to pull from the extra molex connector, and one from the main 20 pin connector.
An additional 12v line had to be pulled from the booster connector block an moved to an open hole on the 20 pin main connector. And one pin had to be pulled and replaced with ground.
Besides that, I pulled all of the pins from the 4 pin flyer cable.
i'm leaving the sleeving off the wire bundle as well. Another posting concerned pulling all 20 pins and putting the cable bundle thru a braided sleeve. I am not going to do that.
The hint about pulling molex pins that turned out to be the most useful was one which suggested using a couple of regular office staples.
The method is as follows. Dispense 2 staples (more if you think you will flub preparing 2). and straighten on pin out to be parallel with the back of the staple. This gives an L shaped staple.
With a pliers or such you insert the staples on either side of a pin to be pulled from the plug side of the connector (not where the wire is, but the pin side).
seat the staple in as far as can be pushed w/o a lot of force. It should go in to just shy of the place the block of the Molex connector is. There are two indents there with small flaps which hold the pin in from being backed out when you plug in the connector.
Once these are released you can pull the pin from the back by the wire, and with a small wiggle it should slide out.
Reform the hold flaps and it can go into another hole in the connector and be just fine.
Here is a youtube video showing how to do it. a movie is worth a thousand words.

I changed out my readynas PSU while waiting 4 weeks for a replacement. I documented what I did here:
I purchased an "Enhance ENP-2322B-G 220W 1U PFC RoHS Power Supply" from ebay for $36.43.
My album has more comments and observations.

Also, I now have an official PSU replacement from Netgear. Contact me and I'll post it to ebay for you to buy.
It's been up and working for a month now without any issues.
