In this 1 Day DIY we take an old ATX size computer power supply and convert it into a handy, high current, DC power supply for our electronics projects.
You’ll need the following parts:
1 x Computer Power Supply
5 x Binding posts
2 x LEDs and 330ohm resistors
1 x power switch
1 x Dummy load resistor
– Heat shrink tubing
You’ll need the following tools:
Recommended dummy load resistors:
New power supplies(12v): 22ohm 10W
Old power supplies(5v): 5ohm 10w
