Look on your motherboard. It doesn't have the standard "24pin power" like a normal motherboard. HP used proprietary 6 pin connectors on the board. You have to adapt the 24 pin power cable from a new PSU to the 6 pin on the board with a special adapter. Most of the adapters out of China are very low quality many don't even work at all.What is the issue re the quality of the adaptor? If running a decent PSU it will be connecting to the graphics card directly (6 or 8 pin connector to graphics card) rather than via the adaptor.
Here's the only one I would get if attempting this.
