The link is several years old, but it is a VERY clever idea!

Desktop computer power supplies are super-cheap, sometimes free, and put out a few hundred watts of very clean & stable DC.

Great find, Greek!

Here is a link to a "buy and use" cheap computer supply that is not in a ATX formated case.

I must be missing the point.

Yes, you can use a computer power supply for radios..I have one powering an aircraft radio (King Kx150) in a portable case, used for Search and Rescue...

What does the board do that you cannot just figure out with a voltmeter?  Find the pins you need, use them?

GreekMan:
from what I see it works as a various connectors and voltage distribution box.
hey! it is a DIY project! some things are done just because.

personally I already have an ATX supply.So...
