If you are like me, you probably have dozens of ATX PC power supplies that has been collecting in your garage ever since the days of 386 computers.
Well, here’s a great way to convert those useless power supplies into DC power supplies you can use for hacking, modding, and whatnot.
Why use a computer (ATX) power supply? Well, they’re available everywhere, and they can output tremendous amounts of power in a small form factor. They have overload protection built right in, and even a 500W model can be reasonably priced with high efficiency. The voltage rails are incredibly stable. Giving nice, clean DC current even at high loads.
