Re: FrankenPower! Building a 12V Power Supply

Could you also modify this to have a 5 volt as well as 3 12 volt outputs? 5 volts would be cool for powering receicers and servos when adjusting in the bench.

I bet the 5V mod would have something to do with all of the "Extra" wires that he cut off.....LOL

Hey Mike if you haven't already cut those wires go ahead and do it to this one. I can make a plug out of something like a 48" Extension to get power to the receiver.

Re: FrankenPower! Building a 12V Power Supply

All computer PS make 5 volts... Just use the RED (edited) wires... and the black..
Most of the power used by computers is at 5 volts.. !!

Do what he says.. and you will have 12 volts and 5 volts

Yellow and Black = 12V
Red and Black = 5V

I already cut off the 5V wires. It's the same concept as the 12V system. I'll do another one soon. Anyone want me to do one for 'em?
