PSU for H520s

2012-09-30, 19:51 PM

greets all.

recently bought an h520s as 2nd (backup) machine.

essentially because of the pricetag.

 

I can't find *any* info on this machine. (other than a sales type flyer).

 

its an i3 with 180W psu.

 

i'd like to add a better gpu and I dont think the psu will handle it.

 

could anyone shed some light on which psu's will physically fit in this case?

 

Thanks!

ok so I managed to dig up the build sheet.  Looks like the use a TFX (?) style supply.

However, the manual lists the PSU as "N" .. meaning "not to be replaced by user"... hmmm.. wonder

if it means I can't replace it.. or they just don't want you to replace it.

 

The GPU i'm looking at is listed as 40W

I wonder if I couldn't get away with just the factory supply?

I had the same problem with the psu so i did a bit of digging and i found a 400W psu that would fit into the case. I installed the new psu myself. If you are not ure how to do that a coputer repair shop will do it for you. For a small fee of course. Here is the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400W-for-AcBel-PC-8046-PC8046-PC7067-PC-7067-Power-Supply-PSU-TFX-ATX-400-Watt-/280884770701?pt=PCA_UPS&hash=item416609778d.
Hope this helps
