You have to short connectors 13 and 14 together on the big connector so that the power supply powers up (numbers are at the back of the connector). Looking from the front of the connector it's the 3rd and 4th hole from the upper left.
Then you can use any of the Yellow and black wires as 12V source (use the black next to the yellow). The rest is like 5 V and stuff that you only need for computer use.

Computer power supplies are super cheap and offer crazy amps on 12V, the one I have in my comp is like 35amps on 12V rail.

I just am utterly dumbfounded. I am wouldn't be surprised if the some of the people here on, didn't complete the paperwork after their daily toilet!

I use it quite frequently, the Search Engine for this Forum. Search for "power supplies", you got 20 different threads addressing power supplies. Search for "gearing", "Batteries", "chargers", there is wealth of information here.

Are people really being helped, or are some of the people actually doing the work and thinking for them.

Well spoken. I'll bet their moms even chew their food for them
