I was just pointing out that you are going to end up spending more to 
get the parts if it is even possible make happen. If a v245 goes for $65 
I imagine a v210 goes for almost nothing. If you bought a stripped v210 
you would have all the parts you need to test your boards and access to 
the actual wiring and voltages to rig something up for the other two 
boards. Starting with just a PC power supply seems a challenge that may 
not even be possible to overcome.  I am not even sure what you want to 
do is possible given the hardcore system and power management that is 
going on inside a V210.
