    Hi, new to the forum

    I have got a 17" G5 iMac ALS with a faulty PSU. Can I replace my 180w Delta PSU, Apple part number - 614-0327 with a ACBEL 180w PSU wither Apple part number 614-0333?

    Many thanks

    Find some technical marks on the label and compare it. Try to search different photos of both models to determine revisions and differencies. Personally have no access to Apple Exchange ****

    Looks like it, a couple of the used parts sellers list both PNs as equivalent.

    Easier said that done to find official service documentation for a machine that's unsupported by the manufacturer any longer as it's 10+ years old.

    I used the word couple, in fact I found three independent used parts vendors, all of whom concur. So what's your point, other than trying to score internet points?

    So yeah, as I said they're interchangeable...

    I'd say yes.

    However you'd better clear it with user406. He drip feeds the answers to life, the universe and everything. ;)

    I'm sure they will be along shortly with a pithy 3 word admonishment.

    Everything is the same on the sticker apart from the 24v:

    Delta = +24vsb----/8w
    ACBEL =+24----0.33A

    Is this the same?
