There are tons of Instructables on how to hack a discarded ATX (computer) power supply unit (PSU) into a lab bench power supply. This is not one of them. My observation is that most makers, hackers, and mad scientists don't follow instructions very well. We like to improve on what already exists and fit the product to our needs. My objective here is to give you all the information that you might need in order to hack an ATX PSU to meet your needs. This isn't so much an Instructable as it is…

ATX Breakout Board. Recycle an ATX computer power supply into a beefy bench tool that powers your projects. The ATX breakout board routes the -12, 3.3, 5 and 12 volt ATX outputs to screw terminals, each protected by a 1.25 amp resettable polyfuse. These four voltages cover a huge range of common electronics needs, there's even a negative voltage (-12 volts) for op amps and audio projects. An on/off button and a control circuit are included on-board, no modifications to the ATX supply are…

Like many of you, I wanted to use a lab bench power supply for my electronics. Unfortunately, they can be very expansive so I wondered if there would be an easier and cheaper way to build one. I came across many great instructables explaining how to modify the power supply from an old computer to a benchtop, but they all required skills and tools I don't have. I finally found out that I could simply use a cheap ATX breakout board. This is by far the easiest solution for the conversion of an…

ATX Breakout Board - recycle an ATX computer power supply into a bench tool for powering projects

In my sophomore year of college at the University of Minnesota, I started into my main electronics classes, and needed a good power supply for working on lab projects at home. My roommate Adam told me about somebody online who had converted an ATX computer power supply into a lab bench power supply, so I decided to do the same thing. You can also check out this link for a very similar guide by their user Abizarl. I have also documented this project on my website at…
