My stock video card blew so I replaced with EVGA GTX 1060 OC. Nice card, great price, fit fine, but fan ran on high with games so I moved it to a new cube case https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M2UKGSM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and now everything is nice and cool and I hooked up the old 330 watt stock PSU. The problem is, I would like to use my nice new 600 watt standard PSU, but the motherboard has a special 6 pin ATX connector. I found some information on them - https://www.lifewire.com/atx-6-pin-12v-power-connector-pinout-2624580, but unsure how to adapt a power supply. Has anyone else done it with this board? I was wondering if this HP adapter would work https://www.ebay.com/itm/ATX-PSU-Po...rkstation-T3S5-/263669491355?oid=142064834609 . I also looked at 24 pin to PCIE adapters, but some say those won't work. Somehow the PSU needs a signal to turn on, but the standard brick seems to be on all the time.
