Default trying to find type of power supply

I'm trying to find a new power supply for an IBM computer but I don't know what type of psu this is that's in it. It is the same size as a regular ATX except that it is thin like a mini ATX. ATX is too big for the case and mini ATX is too small. Any ideas what kind of replacement I need?

Actually I have no idea. It belongs to an industrial company and it's one of thier employees that asked me about it. It has all the regular ATX style connectors but the case is just a weird form factor that I can't find anywhere.

Neither of those are like it. It has the width and depth of the regular ATX form factor but then the height (thickness) is that of a mini ATX.

Sounds like a 1U PSU.

It's not a 1U either, lol. I had no idea this would be so hard to find.

Since you said it's from an IBM, it's best to go to their website and find out. They do sell replacement parts and such.
