Guide: Building a Modular PSU

Posted on Tuesday, Sep 25 2007 @ 05:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Some days, it's hard to be a modder in the current technology boom. It seems that everywhere you look, the great ideas that once only existed in top end mods can now be bought for a tenner on some site. Fan controllers, LCD displays, coloured and sleeved power supplies - you name it, there's now a commercial product for it.

Of course, such products don't always suit all needs - and at some point, don't these products themselves become yet one more thing we need to mod? And what happened to old school originality and hard work? Well, fear not, dear friends - it's far from gone. Some people still like to do things the old-fashioned way, and let's be honest - you can't buy certain looks out of a box.

Maybe that's why some things are still best when done at home - including the modular PSU. If you've got a decent but somewhat old PSU (or a new, silent one, many of which are not modular) then look no further. We'll tell you how to take your old PSU and make it better than ever for about $20 and a few hours of time.
