honestly, I don't know...just heard it was a certain size and shape not easy to find a replacement for. I need to do more research for that since I really don't know much about hardware.
It seems like the cheapest and most viable solution is to hook up an external power supply, but with no knowledge of how to do it, what kind of PSU to get, etc., I really would prefer to know just how to deal with what I have for the time being, because I can afford to sacrifice some performance if it means preventing any potential issues.
P.S. I don't plan to overclock, especially since it will require more power.
