Default Exchanging Magma Power Supply

Hi, I just got a 13 Slot Digidesign branded Magma PCI expansion chassis. It works, but it's very noise. I changed the front fans to 5V and got a new power supply at the computer store.

When I wanted to exchange the psu I noticed that the old one has two big plugs for connection to the mainboard, but the new one only has one...

Since on the second plug there are only a few cables connected, I wonder if I could still use the new psu, there are several 4 pin plugs...

The psu I got is a bequiet BQT E5 400W.

I checked all the magma manuals and specs I could find, but all I found was the info "atx power supply". So I'm still wondering: is it really a special/different power supply?

Any help appreciated.

Why not order the original power supply from magma including new fans as replacement part? And there will be some reason that the fan didn't have 5V. I wouldn't change specs for the central part of your system!!
