this is way in the weeds over here. Appears I thought I was quite a bit smarter than I actually am. I bought a cheap motherboard on ebay, its a socket H2 from an HP Compaq 6200 Pro Desktop.
Silly me I thought I could plug in a standard power supply to it, but it doesn't look like I can.
Actually I have no idea what kind of power supply it is compatible with, or if there is a way to use a modern standard ATX power supply with it. It doesn't seem to have the common large power plug of a more modern system. Odd think is that I took apart an even older computer, I think an LGA 775 socket core duo or something like that, and this one did have the same common power plug I am used to.
So some questions:
Should most "regular" H2 socket motherboards be compatible with a modern power supply, or is this just asking too much? Is there a physical conversion of the power plugs that can make it compatible?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
