Here is my computer PSU that I turned into a bench top PSU.  I took out the normal fan and put in an antec green LED fan that I had, as well as a secondary one I installed on the top.  

I added a toggle switch, a red LED indicating it is plugged in (aka dangerous if opened), and a green LED indicating the power has been turned on.  

I have 3.5v, 5v, and 12v hook ups as well as two grounds.  I decided not to include -12v as I am not in need of it at the moment.  

Hope you like it, let me know if you have any questions.  
<p>What is the use of a -12v connection?</p>

Nice job
Hello Damios, <br>Could you please explain which color wires did you use for the red and green LED's? I am new at this and like your idea of the two LED's. <br>Thank you!
which tutorial did you used to make the bench top psu?<br>
I mainly used this one: <br><br>https://www.instructables.com/id/Converting-a-computer-ATX-power-supply-to-a-really/<br><br>But I ended up not needing the 10ohm 10w resistor, as my PSU powered up fine as long as I had an LED on the power ON and standby cables (green and purple). <br><br>As for the green LED fans, one of them I connected to the original fan power connector and the other one I connected to one of the 12v wires and ground.<br><br>Let me know if you have any extra questions.<br><br>
thank you!<br>but i allready made one&quot;:) <br>and it works so im happy:D
Sounds good, glad it worked out. :)
