Unfortunantely, there is no way I have the time to build them for people, but its a pretty straightforward design that the article should step through well... Just would take too much time to put these things together for people. Besides, what OC'er wouldnt want to take pride in something that they built themselves.
Thanks for the input, hopefully I'll get a few more responses to get a better idea how many people could use something like this. Obviously, not everyone is going to want to do this, since it requires -some- degree of electronic knowlegde, soldering, access to parts, etc.
DorrellCO said:PWM is great(I assume you are talking about Pulse Width Modulation), but I am not really sure pelts need that. A basic supply with a constant amperage/voltage is all that is needed really. But it is your design do what you want.
Wish I knew more about electronics as I am very interested in the design.
I don't care about the heat, but cheaper for PWM is cool. Hope you get that article out. I will try to make one.silvershad0w said:
I know that it may seem contradictory that building a PWM supply is actually cheaper, and in all practical cases better than linear (for the heat concerns),
