Power Distribution Panel

Several people have asked me to "show" them how I built the control panel. So here it is.

CON 1and CON 2 are regular molex connectors scavenged from 2 old cd rom drives.
CON 3 and CON 4 are cd rom inputs from old motherboards.
The buses for the light hookups are scavenged from IDE drive headers on old motherboards (be very aware of polarity when hooking up).
For connectors and wires I used old power, hdd and reset wires with the ends from old comp cases.
The switches on the faceplate are from old power supplies.
The faceplate is an unused one from another case I used to own.

The left hand side of the circuit is only to control the on off of the auxiliary power supply (the one that will power your lights ect.). The right side is where the power is distributed.
I have somewhat overdone the amount of hookups but the circuit is configurable to suit your needs. The 3 different voltages do not need to be used if not necessary, just don’t add that block into the construction. If you want to power something but do not need it on a switch just add a jumper to the appropriate spot and it will come on anytime the aux psu is turned on. My unit only contains the 12 volt section as I am actually using a benchtop power supply that runs at 13.78 volts so the rest would be useless for that (but how it makes the uv cathodes glow).
Any questions just pm me and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.
