HP Z230 CMT Workstation PSU Upgrade?

HP Recommended
Z230 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all!

I've recently bought a new case which has a bottom mount for a PSU, however my current PSU is top mounted and is not possible to use in the new case due to cable restrictions. 

My question is: What PSUs are available and compatible with my system (HP Z230 Workstation CMT)?

My current PSU is 400w but I would like to reach into the 500w+ area.

Help please! :D

the z230 does not use a normal ATX type power supply in size,  also the power connector is non atx (it uses a 6 pin header)


while you can buy a adapter to conver this 6 pin header to a ATX connector be advised this is not recomended by hp, and may also cause  issues with sleep/resume from sleep problems
