Im new to PC building, I bought a refurbished HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Tower (not sff) and I need to know if the power supply is proprietary because I want to be able to swap it out for a more powerful PSU to run a good graphics card. I've gone through multiple websites and they all talk about the SFF model, not the "big" tower. Thanks in advance!
 
From what I can find is that although it is a standard ATX form factor HP uses a proprietary 6 pin motherboard power connector instead of the standard 24 pin meaning a standard ATX PSU will not work. To my knowledge there are no converters or adapters available and the only way you could upgrade it would be to find a higher wattage genuine HP power supply that is compatible.

I googled this adapter, this wouldn’t work?
