PSU upgrade for the HP Pavilion 690-000bla

HP Recommended
Pavilion 690-000bla
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi everyone, 

 

I got the HP Pavilion 690-003bla about a year ago, I want to upgrade the GPU to a GTX 1660, however, my current PSU ( 12 V SFF de 180 W (Gold)) cant handle it, doesnt have enough power and lacks the 6/8 pin connector. 

 

The problem is that the PSU is plugged in to the (sunflower) motherboard via 4 pin connector and I havent been able to find a PSU that uses a 4 pin connector instead of the 24 pin regular connector. I checked at my local pc part retailer and they recommended me to buy a regular PSU and use the regular 4 pin connector that comes with it to plug it in to my motherboard. I cant find information on whats the voltage and amperage that the motherboard takes from that 4 pin connector of my current psu and if thats the same power in the 4 pin connector in this PSU https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Certified-100-W1-0600-K1-Fuente-alimentaci%c3%b3n/dp/B0160XJAQK?language...

 

Im sorry for the broken english, not my first language but I didnt get any luck searching for this in spanish.

@QuasiGT , welcome to the forum.

 

I don't believe that the computer shop's suggestion will work.  The 4-pin connector is HP proprietary.  Here is a Power Supply Cross-Reference Chart to help you find an upgrade: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Power-Supply-Cross-Reference-for-specific-model...

 

Your exact model is not in the chart, but any of the PSU's listed in the 690 series will work with your motheboard.  The one you need is the 500W (L05757-800).  You can only buy it from HP.  It doesn't appear that it is available from HP in Guatemala: https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L05757-800
