Will ASUS GTX1060-O6G-9GBPS or do I need GTX 1060 Mini 6GB fit on Z240 Workstation Tower?

HP Recommended
Z240 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My supplier also carries a variant I'm considering. It is the same Tower but numbered: KIT40703

This includes:

  • 1 NVIDIA QUADRO PRO K620 (which I'll take out)
  • 1 HP Turbo Drive G2 (which is an internal SSD with 256GB)

This variant is also described as: K/HP Y3Y88EA+J3G87AA+M1F73AA


For the price I rather go with the variant.


So my questions are:

  • will it fit the regular Z240 MiniTower?
  • will it fit the variant (KIT40703)?

Txs for all the help

So you want to go from a 45 watt card to possibly a 150 watt card?  You might be in big trouble depending on how your Z240 is configured.  The motherboard in your PC is really not provisioned for high performance, high wattage graphics cards.  High performance motherboards would have 24 pin PSU connector along with an 8 pin auxiliary power connector.


HP does have an optional 400 watt PSU for the Z240 but it's unknown if it has the correct PCIe auxilary power connectors.

Thank you for the heads up.


The model I'm considering comes with the 400w power supply.


I confess I'm a complete noob in this. The information I have about the PCIe slots in this model is:


1 (total) / 1 (free) x PCIe 3.0 x16 - total length, total height
1 (total) / 1 (free) x PCIe 3.0 x1 - total length, total height
1 (total) / 1 (free) x PCIe 3.0 x16 - total length, total height (X4 mode)

1 (total) / 1 (free) x PCIe 3.0 x4 - total length, total height

1 (total) / 1 (free) x M.2 Card (X4 mode)


Is this information enough or is something missing? I'm totally happy to read to learn is someone points me to a nice resource on the subject.


Thank you
