Can I power a 5M 5050 RGB led strip with a pc PSU? Answered
I would love to control an RGB led strip with an Arduino, it would look great on my desk. I would love to know wether I could power this strip using an old desktop powersupply.

I want to be able to either power the strip directly and control it with an arduino using a mosfet, or plug it in to the box to control the colours with the ir remote that comes with the strip. I probably won't use the entire strip at once, but I think I'll use 3M or less.
It would be great if you could help me!
