Was the IBM 62X1139 IBM XT 286 157 WATT Power Supply the most powerful PSU that would fit properly into a standard PC/XT?

Thanks,
Mike

Aftermarket 200-watt PC/XT power supplies were commonly available. I have one in my 5150 PC.

Actual IBM perhaps.
But as vwestlife mentioned, generic aftermarket supplies fit right in since they essentially cloned the design.

My 5150 is temporarily using a 200W unit, since it's original 63W failed and I haven't had time to diagnose it.
