    From what I see is you have a 24 pin mobo cable...so that fits in the the 24 pin mobo header. Then you have the 4 pin CPU that needs to be connected.

    From you pictures I can't see the mobo completely that shows the 24 pin mobo header.

    you can't do that...you have to buy an exact replacement PSU for that HP PC. That's because of the proprietary hardware HP uses. Thus not allowing aftermarket hardware to be used/installed.

    I did find an adapter; a 24 pin to 6 pin.....it's an option.

    Other than that, you can do 1 of 2 things...buy a pre assembled custom built PC or build your own. If you want to use standard aftermarket hardware for upgrading.

    Thanks hey I'm based in South Africa and looked all over for that cable because it's a nice option to using a bigger power supply with normal watt atx and if I have the cable I won't need to worry about future power supplys exploding....

    Davie26,

    I've edited your second post to remove the entire contents.

    First, it's not wise to post your email address on a public forum as it will get harvested by spammers.

    Second, all assistance is to be done on the boards as per the site rules.

    Thanks for understanding.
