Old Board Requires 6pin power. PSU only got 4 pin. What to do?

HP DC 7100

I have this old  motherboard - model 361682-001 which is from a DC7100 I believe - and I want to fire it up but PSU does not have a six pin motherboard power connector, only a four pin.

 

What can I do about this?  I have to get another PSU?  Or there's an adapter?  Or a jumper on the board?  Or there's a special cable?  

 

Or forget the whole thing?

HERE is a pinout for the 6 pin plug.  According to that page, it is the same as the 6 pin for a video card power.  That would be available on newer power supplies or you could make an adapter.  I did find an adapter, but cannot verify if it will suit your needs.

Yep, thanks a lot for all that.  Excellent resource, those pages.  I've bookmarked them and downloaded them.  Doubtless over the next few months I'll lose both.  😞

 

Don't thinkt he adaptor works for what I want.  Don't understand it.  Seems to be molex 4 pin peripheral power but only got three pins in there...   and uses two of them to get 6 pins.... and refers to the whole thing as a 6 pin connector...

 

No matter.  I can make something up from those pinouts.

 

Thanks again.
