A few days ago I was sitting here at my desk reading all the e-mails from all the readers concerned that I was gonna fry my power supply with my cigarette lighter modification. And I'm thinking (probably shouldn't do that, that's usually the beginning of a few days work!) I still have the old power supply left over from an upgrade to my 350 watt sparkle. There has to be some way to fit an extra power supply into a mid case, hmm,..
WAIT, this is the disclaimer! I am not responsible if you stick a drill in your eye. I am not responsible if you cut your fingers off with a jigsaw. Its not my fault if you are electrocuted and it burns off all you body hair. I am not responsible if you burn your house down. This is electricity you are going to be playing with, its dangerous. This article is written as a novelty item only. I am not liable for anything you do. I am not an electrician, nor am I trained in electronics. I imply no expertise in these fields and may very well burn down my own house. That I will probably be held responsible for. Unless I can find someone else to blame!
- One Old ATX PSU
- Soldering Iron / Solder / Flux
- Electrical Tape
- Wire Cutters / Strippers
- 2 Power Supply Power Cords
- Chipboard ( For Template Material )
- Razor Knife ( For Cutting Template )
- Female Molex Connector
- Drill / Bits
- Metal File ( or Dremel with sanding drum attachment )
- JigSaw / Metal Blades. If you don't have a jigsaw this project can be done with just a dremel and some heavy duty cut-off wheels. Just expect to bleed! Cutting wheels shatter and the fragments travel at a very high velocity.
- Power Relay Switch ( Available at any decent car stereo installation shop for between 4 and 11 dollars )
