  1. Hi i have a HP p6341sc computer and i need to change the power supply

    Corsair TX 650W PSU
    ATX 12V V2.2, 80 Plus, Standard. 2x 6+2-pin PCIe, 8x SATA, 120mm Fan

    is what i had in mind but im wondering if its going to work i dont really see a reason why it shouldnt but i just want a confirmation

    Heres my computer spec in details


    The reason to why i want a new power supply is so that i can buy a new GOOD graphics card but my current 300w power supply isnt enough

    so please help me thanks!

    PSU dimensions are listed as: 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) X 5.9"(L)

    You case is listed as:
    Mid-size ATX

    * Height: 38.7 cm (15.23 inches)
    * Width: 17.5 cm (6.89 inches)
    * Length: 41.4 cm (16.29 inches)

    Assuming there's nothing blocking the area where the PSU goes and the cutout for the back of the PSU is standard it would fit fine. You should not need any new cables.

    Go inside your case with a ruler and measure the dimensions of your current PSU. If they're the same or smaller as the dimensions kindly provided above, then you're good.

    Like they say, measure twice, cut once.

    Looks like a standard case from HP, don't see any problem putting the Corsair TX PSU into it.
    And your machine isn't that old so no problem with any shortage of molex power connectors (mostly used for older ATA100/133 HD and Optical drives). THe new PSU has mostly SATA power connectors for drives.
