Hey everyone,

I'll have it short. For some reason I can't use my 850W Platinum be quiet PSU on my ASUS Maximus VI Hero Z97 (https://rog.asus.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/M7H_2D.jpg) for my i7-4790 instead I wanna use this 300W PSU ( https://www.amazon.com/HP-280G1-PCC130-Supply-712298-001/dp/B01DCHJCH4) that came with my HP ProDesk 490 G2 desktop for some time until I get things fixed out. But the HP PSU has only P4 CPU Power Pin while the Z97 board requires 8 pin EATX12V, can I possibly use the P4 of the HP Psu in the EATX12V 8 PIn port ? I will disable the 4.0GHz Turbo Mode as it was running like this on my be quiet psu and run everythiny 'optimally' I also have an Asus Dual-FAN GTX 1650 75W which takes all the powet through the PCI-e slot, will it be sufficient the board to run with p4 connector without any overclocking at all?

yes you can, as long as long as your pc doesn't pull too many watts.


the 8 pin cpu connector is just a 4+4
