Is a PC 450W PSU good for powering drivers?
I got 450w PC PSU is it safe to use it to power laser drivers?

Re: Is a PC 450W PSU good for powering drivers?
I would just buy a standalone switch mode power supply. It is a lot easier, bearing in mind you have to short some pins on PC PSUs to get them to turn on. However, it may be a viable option since you get 5V and 12V rails on a computer PSU.
