I bought a HP Prodesk 600 G3 (model y3e02av) for a friend hoping to upgrade it with a half decent graphics card, but the PSU it came with is an 180w proprietary power supply with a 4 pin cpu and 4 + 7 pin motherboard connector. I want to change the power supply with a normal ATX power supply but the problem is, I can't find a proper 24 pin to 4 +7 pin adapter for the motherboard. There are adapters for other HP prebuilts like the Z230, elitedesk, and older prodesks, but not for this particular system. I was for some help finding the correct adapter if it exists.

Replacement are still available at around 100 dollars a pop
https://www.amazon.com/D16-180P2A-Power-Supply-Compatible-ProDesk/dp/B08F5C4XRK

optionally you can go a cheaper route and buy regular atx pus and for 50 bucks or so and buy one of these adapters

or you if you're an adventurous type with crimping tool on hand, you can buy the corresponding molex connectors and make the adapter yourself.
I am aware of that adapter, but it's for older models with 6 pin motherboard connectors, the G3's P1 connector is 4 pin and I haven't been able to find an adapter with 4 pins yet

Thanks, I have a crimping tool but I'm not sure if I'm knowledgeable enough to figure out the other 5 P2 pinouts by myself. I'll investigate with a multimeter and see if I can figure it out. HP isn't making it easy, these cable color is not even standard :mad:
