We have some HP Z towers (Z230 & Z240) that wish to put an upgraded graphics card and it needs greater PSU than the lowly HP unit. Problem is that HP in their wisdom have an 18pin PC1 cable connector on the m/board compared to the 24pin of newer PSU replacement units. Any ideas on adaptors or the like to solve?! TIA
