Picture of What Can You Do With a Bad PC Power Unit


This is my first instructable here on this site. I will show you how you can make simple connectors from the PSU of your old not working PSU.
All the time I bought that type of connector and one day I sad it's time to thinking how to reuse old electronic equipment and see what can we do with.
Let's go.

Step 1: Old PSU Mobo Power Cable Bunch

Cut the old cable bunch from the PSU.

Step 2: Take Out the Cables

It is easy to take out the cables. Just see on the pictures.

Step 3: This Is When the Cables Out

Use a heat wrapping tube to isolate the connector.

Step 4: The End

Now you can see the result.

Now you have a bunch of isolated connector cables for connecting into electronic mobos or whatever without to worry to make a shorten or whatever.
Good luck.

I tried this and the connectors are too loose for goldpins

Crush slightly with pliers?

Some time I have to crush it too with pliers. That works.
Some time it will fit on without of crashing.
Never know on what type of connector I'm go...
