Hello!

So I own a HP 6300 compaq pro microtower with 320W Power Supply and GeForce GT 730. I would like to upgrade the GPU, but PSU won't be able to supply it. Any ideas/help with changing PSU? I heard that HP PSU are difficult to change, so Any help/ideas are really nice!

Provide link to specifications (you can find them with serial number). There seem to be gazillion HP 6300 models.

So these are:
Product number: XY107ET#UUW
Serial number: CZC1362FHV

Don't have any idea what to do with it, but as you command

That's the way it works :clapping:

Then bad news. Power supply is non-standard one. Motherboard is non-standard one.

 

So basically you cannot change PSU and new case doesn't help as you would still need non-standard PSU.

 

To put this shortly, situation is much like :axe:

 

If you are willing to take risk, you can try card like Radeon RX 460 that "should" work with that PSU. You should still check that you can fit that new graphic card in that case. Too long cards are probably blocked.

The GeForce GT 730 works fine, because I have already added it. But can you explain why can't I just put in any other PSU? Because it would be nice to learn something new ;)

GT 730 should be max around 50W, so it should work.

 

You can switch another PSU on same case if you find one that has similar dimensions. No standard PSU's fit.

 

Switching case and putting standard ATX PSU does not help as motherboard have non-standard connectors (standard ATX PSU does not have them).

Now you know why i don't like HP computers, and the wiring might be different on that psu too , i remember some old dell computers where they did that trick on people just so they could sell more PSU with dell stickers on em and if you connected a after market PSU to your dell mobo the thing would fry.

Thanks for help, after a couple days I decided to buy a whole new PC, so now I'm going to create a new thread with questions about it. Thanks for help once again! :)
