PSU Upgrade - HP TP01-0550nd

HP Recommended
HP TP01-0550nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm looking into upgrading the PSU of a HP TP01-0550nd, but searching the forum it doesn't seem that easy to figure out which PSU to buy since the HP power supplies are proprietary and don't have the usual 24 pin connection.

 

I've looked into the Spreadsheet with listed HP Desktops but mine's not on there. I do know there's a TP01 version with a 310 watt Gold Efficiency PSU, but I can't seem to find that exact product so I can order it at a HP Parts Seller... Hopefully someone can give me some more information about this PSU or give me any suggestions for other PSUs that might work.

Thanks!

@MoonCat,

Yes, the 400W PSU having the PCIe power plug would be the safer option.

All the listed PSU will fit into the case of any of the listed "series".  That would include the 0550nd model.

Thank you for your patience.  You were very kind.

 

I hope I solved this to your satisfaction.

@MoonCat,

I wrote that spreadsheet.  The HP TP01 is a series.  Sorry I did not know of your exact model.

All power supply models work with all these computers.   Your L08660-800 does not have a PCIe 6 pin power plug.  I do not have any evidence that any of the 310W have a PCIe power plug (as yet).  I ask, I beg for information.

 

What card are you planning to use.

I'm planning to use any card that will improve the system as a whole. It's for light editing so perhaps an Nvidia 1650 and up would be fine.


Sorry, I'm not an expert and I don't know what you mean with the PCIe 6 pin plug?

@MoonCat,

Any choice of GPU card has a given requirement for power and maybe a PCIe power plug.

Caution:  While most GTX 1650 cards are 75W, some have a required 6 pin PCIe power plug.  If you stay away from EGVA and MSI you will avoid that problem.  Do research the card via NewEgg.

 

It means that even for a GTX 1650,  75W cards that do not have a need for any PCIe 6 pin power can use the 310W.  If the card does have a PCIe 6 pin power requirement, it has to have the 400W.   It only pertains to our discussion on the GTX 1650. Read the spreadsheet very carefully.

Thank you so much for the clear explanation, I think I understand it more now.
So would it be safest and best to go for the 400Watt PSU that is listed on your spreadsheet since it has a PCIe power plug? Or am I reading the sheet wrong...

My main question is about the listed PSUs: is it true that all PSUs listed can fit in all HP desktop listed ( or particularly the TPO1-0550nd)?

Thanks again for your time!

Good to know that I can pick any of the PSU on your list because I wasn't sure if they would fit or work.
This solved a lot for me. I haven't really decided on a specific video card, but since you mentioned a PSU with a Pcie plug would be safest I wil go for that 400watt PSU.

 

Thanks again and wishing you a nice weekend 🙂
