I can supply 24amps through the 5V+ line, 8 amps 12V+, and 2.8amps through the 12V- line. This is all internally regulated. There is a way I can make it an adjustable power source but, alas I am not terribly electronical building inclined and it involves building a regulating board.
+1 being I use to repair computers, I had tons of power supplies around but never realized they could be used for this application.
