Z240 workstation power connectors??

z240 PSU is good to run up to GTX 1070, and 1080 with some limits (both factory tested). VGA without need of auxiliary power should be OK all the time.

Z240 workstation power connectors??

HP workstations are spected to run with several drives/memory/pci-e cards installed

 

i'm not sure if your model has a higher wattage supply that is used when running high power cpu's and a fully decked out system (all drive bays/memory/pci-e slots filled) however if the card(s) have power connectors, then you need to determine what each card draws and see if it exceeds the existing supply

 

what i can say is that your hp service manual will list the supply(s) wattage and how much can be drawn from the supply

 

with the above said, i will point out that the pci-e slot delivers 75 watts per slot and the stock power supply is designed to work without issues  with all spci-e / ram slots filled so for your use a video card with no aux power connector is well within the allowed power spects, no other changes need to be done

 

next, HP uses a sustom power supply/connector. the pinouts can again be found in the HP service manual

 

the person who told you to connect a generic 24/20 pin adapter will possibly cause you to damage the pwr supply or motherboard or both since the system does not use a axt style supply it is a micro ATX supply as i recall

 

you might want to read this HP link (remeber google is your friend!!)
