    Modded Atx Power supplies..............

    I found these in a surplus business in my area. These are 400 watt atx power supplies that were turned into testing power supplies. The big one outputs 12v@ 20 amps and the little one does 12v@ 10 amps. Some have lighted power switches and some just use the normal on/off switch that comes with the power supply. Just wanted to see if these are of any use in the world of carpc'

    Yeah...
    For testing anything that requires 12vDC...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Just wanted to add that these also have internal circuit breakers that reset automatically if the load is too great........................

    They still require 120V input... don't see the use other than for testing.
