  • Thanks for the reply. Yes, there is an 8-pin 12V rail readily on this PSU but I will also need a 5V too so I think this Benchtop Power Board Kit will be handy for the project.

    My worry is at the size and length of wire needed for connecting the 12V common of RGB strip to the 12V banana plug of this board. Would it be appropriate to use a 1kV/3A stranded wire:

    I used a cable size calculator here:

    http://www.solar-wind.co.uk/cable-sizing-DC-cables.html

    it suggests 0.8 meters wire length - is this the right way to calculate the wire length?

  • Hello,

    I plan to use this item with Corsair HX520W

    http://www.silentpcreview.com/article692-page1.html

    to power up a 12V/14A RGB LED strip. In the power description,

    http://media.www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Articles/Sources/C/Corsair%20620W%20PSU/Images/2.png

    it says this power supply unit can provide 18A from each of its three +12V rails.

    Does this plan doable?

    Your time and input will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

No public wish lists :(
