Default PC Power supply Booster

Well I have a HP DC7700 small form factor pc.Due to it being small form factor it's hard to upgrade it because of the psu in it.It has a 240w active pfc which is in cfx type.because of the custom motherboard hp decided to use a custom motherboard.I think by the layout of the board it can assume it is a btx board.My question is if i buy a psu booster that is designed to just power graphics cards on a pci-e slot,would it be safe to do if i added more cooling solutions to my pc to keep it running cool whilst running the extras.the psu booster i am thinking of buying is something like this:
If you coould help me i would be very grateful.

There's no reason the heat coming out of this thing should overload a BTX system. If it's a MicroATX or PicoATX case, it could be a problem, but my stance is that if you're trying to expand a system that small anyway, you're just throwing money out the window.
