Hello, I was considering to upgrade my motherboard and cpu, and i was going to upgrade my current mobo for a Asus prime x570-p, but putting my system on partpicker gives me this note/error:

"The Asus PRIME X570-P ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair CX 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it. "

I was wondering if this is a problem that would damage my system or it's nothing to worry about and if so is there a way to fix this.

Thanks

The lack of an additional 4-pin connector is usually not a problem. The larger problem is that this is a new platform and a cheap, mediocre, group-regulated PSU that's now a decade old. It has no business being in this system, even with only a 3050.

What power supply should I upgrade to in your opinion?

Anything that's Tier B on the curated PSU list in the forum. You don't need a fancy one; an updated Corsair CX after they greatly upgraded the platform to a modern one in 2014 would be just fine. You could even get away with a 450W one unless you plan to really push the overclocking, though it wouldn't leave you room for future upgrades.


You can actually find pretty good deals on a lot of PSUs, like there's been an EVGA Platinum-rated one for $70. Some of the supply chain issues in tech are better than in 2021 or 2020 and the slowdown in PC purchasing has left a lot of excess stock.

Oh i never thought this PSU was so outdated, i bought it in 2017 and never had any problems.

I had in mind to buy a used Enermax revolution xt II 650W 80 plus gold, since im buying all the "new" components from the same guy.
Thanks so much for your time 💕
