I want to upgrade the power supply in my HP Z220. However the motherboard uses a proprietary 18 pin connector instead of a 24 pin connector.

I can plug a 24 pin connector into the 18 pin, the connector clicks into place and there are 6 pins off to the side. However I wanted to know if this would cause any damage to the components.

I am aware that you can buy a 24 pin to 18 pin adapter. I have ordered one however it will take a month or two to arrive, and wanted to know if this would work as a temporary solution.
