What is wrong with the CX430 you have there now?

It might have died or they are planning to get a gpu and need more power

WE need to know that info then. If they are getting a new GPU, we can't recommend a unit without knowing what GPU it is.

It's not connecting quite right into the motherboard. I always had this problem but i kinda made it work. But when i switched the CPU cooler it wouldn't power the MOBO at all.

The CX units are known for the 24-pin cable being hard to connect. It will require alot of force.

There is nothing wrong with your PSU.

So do i maybe just need to push hard? it's kinda scary cause i don't want to break my motherboard or anything.

Yes you likely just need to push harder. Put your hand under the motherboard where the connector is so you do not bend the motherboard. These connectors are often very difficult.
