Dell Precision T3600 Power Supply Options?

I just picked up a used T3600 and upgraded to 64GB of ECC RAM (4X 16GB ECC DIMMs). Now I get a message at POST saying recent hardware changes require an upgrade to the power supply.

Will an 825 watt or 1300 watt supply from a T5600 work in the T3600?  Can anyone confirm compatibility in a T3600?

It looks like the T3600 originally shipped with a 425W or a 635W supply.

Thanks in advance!

Hi _erin,

The T3600 originally shipped with a 425W or 635W PSU, whilst the T5600 shipped with a 635W or 825W. The 635W model is cross-compatible (Dell part numbers: 1K45H, NVC7F) so the 825W (Dell part numbers: DR5JD, CVMY8 ) shouldn't present any issues (however, it isn't a supported configuration)
