Introduction: DIY Computer Power Supply Turned Into a Household Power Supply

Picture of DIY Computer Power Supply Turned Into a Household  Power Supply

After seeing the PC PSU hack I decided to make one myself and it I think it turned out good.
plus I added a 12 volt accessory  and a usb port to power my usb lighting creations without worrying about my PC USB ports.
This is a 350 WATT PSU from an old PC, The board is mounted on a piece of aluminum sheet and I have been using RTV blue gasket maker to form a non conductive surface between the board & sheet so there shall be no short circuits.
It is not pretty but it sure does a nice job!

Hi!
you would need a ATX computer power supply unit, some wood, some ingenuity, and time. I don't have a step by step on how to make this but there others out there with step by step Instructable.
