    Default Power supply suggestions

    Hi, i was using a 5V switching power supply, you know the bricks with alu cover and holes in it, but it was only capable of tuning up to 5.5 Volts and for my blue i need at least 5.7V so i cannot get it to power up to its full capability.
    What kind of powersupply would be handy for building in my case.

    You could find a 7.5 or 9V switcher. That'd do it.

    Personally, I use 12V supplies for powering my diode modules (using Flexmods) So long as the FM is heatsinked well, they are fine, and it means you can run 12V case fans off it too. in my latest build I put a 10A 12V supply in which will run the dual 445 and a big red as well, with plenty to spare.
