Introduction: DIY Modified Power Supply Unit

Hello! In this instructable, I've built a lab power supply using an old computer PSU. The PSU is not so powerfull, actually drains only 230W, but for me is ok! If it work's well I'm gonna use this power unit to energize my future project :) Sorry for my bad english! Greetings from Romania and I hope you will enjoy watching the pictures. :)

    there's nothing special with this PSU. i've just cut the wires to the proper length, added some terminals for "banana" connectors for 3.3v, +5v, -5v, +12v, -12v, gnd, a power button and that's all. you can find other examples with integrated voltmeters or ammeters powered by Arduino and so on. Instructables and google are your friends, so as Steve Jobs said, stay hungry for knowledge! :D

    Your English is great. I wish that I was as proficient in my second language as you are.
