This week in our Community, Troy Simpson shared his epic ATX power supply build.

It suits nearly any small home project that needs power. I have things that need 3V3, 5V, not often 12V. This thing cranks out 10A though which is ample for most home projects. You can also combine the negatives and positives to get the net difference in volts. So, -12V + 12V gives you 24V. Similarly with any mix with the -5V as well.

So, a nice, versatile power supply from an old unwanted computer. (read more)


Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog

We featured an awesome Mithotronic LEDmePlay Gaming Console project this week on the blog. Thanks to Tom for sending it in! Check out more info here. He writes:

We have built a 32×32 RGB LED and Arduino based (retro-)gaming console. We had this idea when we were playing around with one of your tutorials in 2013. Meanwile, we showed our console on the Maker Faire in Hanover and the Maker World in Friedrichshafen, Germany and met with great enthusiasm. We encourage people to copy and improve on what we have built and hopefully share our/their games.(read more)
