CX430 compatibility with HP envy

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls, I have a CX430 thats never been used and want to use it in an HP envy H8-1417C but I've noticed that while the stock psu has a 4 pin connector for the motherboard the CX430 does not. What kind of issues will I be looking at if I don't have this connector and instead rely on the main connector?

First talk with HP and confirm if the PSU that came with it is even ATX compatible. It may not be.

 

If it is, you'll be able to split the 8 pin EPS connector into two 4 pin connectors and then you can use one of those.

 

If the original PSU isn't ATX compatible, then attempting to use an ATX compatible PSU in the system is not recommended and will likely damage the system.

No no no.....

 

DO NOT do that.

 

The 20+4 should remain a 24-pin if your motherboard accepts a 24-pin ATX connector. Do not use the extra 4-pins at all.

 

Take a look at the 8-pin. IT SPLITS IN HALF. This is the four pins you are looking for.
