ATX Breakout board free PCB build

Dolabra built an ATX Breakout board free PCB. The ATX breakout board routes the -12, 3.3, 5 and 12 volt ATX outputs to screw terminals, each protected by a 1.25 amp resettable polyfuse.

It wouldn’t be a free build if something wasn’t bodged together. In my case it was the ATX connector. I got all the parts from ebay — I couldn’t find a right angle ATX connector on ebay, so I got a vertical one. I thought it would fit, but it didn’t. So I ended up making it a right angle by bending the bottom row of pins and extending the top row of pins with 18ga finishing nails! It actually worked better than I expected. Also the push button I got from ebay was smaller than the footprint, but I was able to make it fit. The downside of buying from ebay.

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.
