There are multiple models of the 400w floating around. Which one do you have?

Cool

Used that mod myself. You need to tweak the pots about 1/8 of a turn at a time to get the desired result.

Normally, the PSU has a resistor that slowly bleeds the charge away over a few hours. Unfortunately, it's also possible that the resistor fails, leaving the capacitors charged. (The story's actually much more complex than this, but this will do)

Contact with the high side (lotsa volts) can be fatal. Contact with the low side (few volts) is safer, as you'll only find the same 12v, 5v etc that you will in the case. The two sides of the PSU are isolated, so if you only work on the side with the low voltage, you'll be safer.

In the article Pinky threw up, the dangerous voltages are on the far side of the PSU, where the large capacitors and power connectors are. The safer voltages are where the pots are.

If you're not sure, then it's probably better to find someone else who can made the changes safely, or just to buy a new PSU.
