Any power suply from any manafacturer can create this sort of failure.
It is not unique to Dell servers. These things just happen and you can not 
do anything about it.

I even had a power supply go and blow up the entire mainboard (non Dell 
machine) by sending a voltage spike to it. Just bad luck I guess.


Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
