    Lightbulb Internals of a psu

    Hey guys, I am wondering if you guys can tell me how would I go about recognizing the internals of a psu (like the rails, DC-DC converters, and stuff like that), Thanks!

    Just don't expect you can learn or understand everything in a week.

    It talks about DC-DC converters but doesn't show a picture, I also don't see anything about finding the minor rails either. Those are really the only things I am looking for, if you guys know of them tell me please, Thanks!

    This is the old article from the same writer aris.
    most common for dc-dc its the picture with one daughterboard,
    look in reviews and find it.
    sometimes there are few daughter boards, look for one near the output wires and with coils.

    Start with this (find it your self).

    and than go to this.
