Upgrading PSU in 690-0024

HP Recommended
Pavilion 690-0024
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to upgrade my PSU from a 400w to a 650w.

I’m not good with computers but as far as I know, my Sunflower motherboard doesn’t have the usual 24 pin connector, I believe it’s a 4x4 and also non ATX.

I want to put in a Corsair CM 650w PSU.

Would this be possible if I am able to find some sort of adapter? and which one would I need?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, upgrading to a 650W PSU is very difficult for the reason that you mentioned.  The only adapters that have been found are overseas and very expensive.  The best you can hope for is a 500W PSU.  Here is a Cross-Reference Guide to help you find the 500W PSU: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Power-Supply-Cross-Reference-for-specific-model...

 

All of the PSU's in the Guide will work with your motherboard.

Thanks for replying.

I have seen that list but I strongly prefer not to use an HP power supply.

You are welcome, @beanmachine!

 

I don't like to be the barer of bad news, but because of the proprietary power connectors on the motherboard only a HP PSU will be compatible.  This is the reason the Guide was created.
