Need to Replace Late 2004 Power Supply. Is this one compatible?

Howdy iFixit!

An acquaintance of mine gave me her Power Mac G5 which has been failing for a while. Finally it stopped booting, though the sleep light would come on and the startup chime could be heard.

I went over to take a look at it, and when I pulled it out, there was liquid everywhere! I immediately assumed that the Liquid Cooling System had leaked, and I was very right.

The Power Mac was given to me and I proceeded to open it up to find out exactly what needed replacement and what could be salvaged.

I have found that the Liquid Cooling System/Dual 2.5GHz Processor block needs to be replaced, and the 600W Power Supply needs to be replaced.

So, I've already purchased a new Cooling System, but finding the right Power Supply is the trick. It seems there are two models that look similar but have different model numbers and different brands.

The power supply in my Power Mac is a 600W LiteON 614-0307 model. I've found what I think is the perfect replacement, but it's an AcBel 614-0306!

This is the one I'm looking at.

Basically, I want to know if this one will work in my Power Mac. It looks perfectly identical. It's just one number away from my model number and a different brand.

Does anyone know if this model power supply will work?

Thanks so much! :)
