A Dead 400Watt PSU, Any good use of it?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Its dead. it does not power up. but there is a sign that tells me to not throw it in a trash can. also what can i do with that psu, since its dead, it's no longer useful!

And im sure aboutcapasitors..
Are they dangerously Charged?

Door Stop
Paperweight
Frame it if it has any sentimental value
Weapon (if gripped by power cables)
Toss the innards and use it as a junk holder
etc.
There are plenty of uses for an empty metal box and almost as many for a heavy metal box.
