I'm making an 8x8x8 cube of RGB LEDs.
Computer power supplies look like a great idea for powering my project as I can get a 5v 30 amp current source for a lot cheaper then buying a dedicated laboratory type current source.
I found this article here http://www.wikihow.com/Convert-a-Computer-ATX-Power-Supply-to-a-Lab-Power-Supply which describes a method for altering the protective casing of the power supply to make a neat interface for it. The article also discusses discharging the power supply before messing around with it (a good idea) but is there anything else I might need to know before I buy one for my project? Does anyone have any experience with this? Tips? Suggestions?
Thank you in advance.
