Introduction: Computer Power Supply Heater
i was Bord and i had some old computer parts so i went to work.
Step 1: Gut It Out
the first thing i had to do was to gut out the power supply i would be putting the heater coil, power switch and the USB power curciut.
Step 2: Cut the Cords
next i had to trim the cords that i might use later. i tried an led but it exploded and a fan blows the air to fast. so i don't know what ill connect them to just yet. but i later found a USB port and it works just great.
Step 3: Heating Element
then i had to find some sort of heating element so i use an old spring i had lying around. and i hooked it up to a red and black set. cause the yellow cords got it to hot.
Step 4: Heat Shield
i thought it might be a good idea to add a sort of heat shield. so that the coil wouldn't melt the USB circuit. so i took the back of an old floppy drive and chopped it up ad hot glued it into place.
Step 5: Finished for Now
I'm not completely done with this project for now but it work fine. and I'm happy with it for now.
