    Just wanted to see if anyone has some old power supplies laying around that they no longer need.

    I found one 250w psu in a PC that I took apart & it's a good start but I need a couple more to connect the 5v outputs together so I can get 15v+/- at a higher amperage output. Most of the 12v outputs I've tested actually only output 11.5v or less & that's not quite enough for what I'm going for.

    I've got a couple projects in mind where I need a few PC psu's. I'd like to find some in the 300w + range, but if the price is right (or you'd like to trade something) I might be interested in some 200w or so psu's too.

    Not too picky if they're from an AT, ATX, mini ATX, etc.
    Let me know what you've got & maybe we can make a deal :yes:

    Just a basic atx style power supply...


    # of fans doesn't matter either. I'm probably gonna pull out all the guts from 3 of them and make a bigger enclosure for all of them.

    I've been playing with an old psu from an old pc, but the 12v output is just under 12v. I've heard you can connect 3 psu's 5v outputs together in series to obtain 15v+/- at a high amperage. It worked with some outdoor lighting transformers I've been experimenting with, but I ended up with over 30v at 5a+. I need to come up with a way to drop the 30v down below 20v before it hits my adjustable voltage circuits to keep the heat down.

    Like he said, I was burning in klinger's ring & my "store bought" power supply decided it wanted to randomly change voltages from 9v to 20v and screwed up some led's :( Luckily, I have several small power supplies made from wall-wart power adapters, but they're limited to about 1a output. Some of the stuff I make needs 3a or more to properly test.

    I was hoping to find some old pc's at the thrift stores around here, but nobody takes in old computers anymore, so I'm S.O.L. there :cry:

    Heck, if I could find an entire pc tower, I might use that to house all the power supplies.... it figures, I just threw an old pc chassis away earlier this year.

    Diablo, let me know how much you need for your psu whenever you have time & we'll see what we can come up with :thumbsup:
