[SOLVED] Asus mb for the HP Vectra VL420 Mb

I bought what was supposed to be, and is, an Asus P4B-MX mother board, and downloaded a manual for it. But, the board and manual are different. Turns out that this is a proprietary board for the HP Vectra Vl420 desktop.

There is a six pin connector on the board labeled "PSU_FAN" which makes me believe that a proprietary HP power supply must be used.

Does anyone know if a standard ATX power supply is compatible? I've searched this forum and Googled with no results.

SOLVED - Kept Googling and found pinout for the HP psu 20 pin connector. It's same as regular ATX PSU.
