Versatile voltage source for DIY and electronics

The idea behind this is trivial! I had a Corsair PC source gathering dust and thought of giving it a job:

It will be my new project supply. Well, this one is a very good all-rounder as it’s a 750W unit.

But most PC power sources will give you: +3.3, +5, +12 V at good amps(well above 5A). Mine will give 60A at 12v but that’s not a must, unless you want to start large motors or you need to charge a lot of batteries in the same time – 2/3 packs of NiMh at 4 or 5 amps each — the current output depends on the total power of the source.

But if you do need this large current please DO NOT use this breadboard method. A good way for large currents is to get the wires directly from the power rail and fit new plugs of your choice.

Here is a picture of the finished unit. Te green led is only to remind me to shut it off.

    nice looking – what do you have under development now ? Have you ever think why young people are more interested in studying social science than technical ?!!
    why the new technology is not release on the market it is not allowed to be more specific for general use?
