@computeruser99,

 

Thank you for posting your query on HP Community,

 

As per the Product specifications, it shows that your PC has been shipped with Internal 180 W PSU, 

 

So, If you wish to upgrade the power supply the only thing that you need to observe is the form factor. 

 

This PC support uATX form factor, so when you're upgrading, please ensure to check the other power supply supports the same form factor.

 

Only then, it would be compatible on this PC. 

 

Regarding the chieftec  aps-450s 450w, this power supply supports ATX form factor, so this may not be compatible on your PC.

 

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help you.

 

That said, If the information I've provided was helpful, give us some reinforcement by clicking the Accepted Solution and Kudos buttons, that'll help us and others see that we've got the answers!

Have a great day!

@computeruser99,

While the motherboard is uATX, the PSU is ATX .  Just measure the existing PSU.
