At first I questioned the quality of the binding posts. I do not put much trust in the pressure contact of stranded wire on such a terminal nor do I trust the tighthess when wrapping solid wire around the stud. I soldered my leads to fork terminals and connected them to the posts. They tightened down and to this day I can not turn the wire on the studs.

Crummy binding posts make this almost unusable!
I was disappointed after my initial inspection: the binding posts are completely worthless! Theyre some of the worst pieces of junk Ive seen! I wrapped a stripped length of 14AWG wire around the post, and it wouldnt hold. Tried the same thing with 26AWG, 24AWG, 22AWG, and 18AWG. 26-22AWG seemed fine, and 18AWG was iffy. The tests were all conducted on the same post +5V. Aside from the crummy posts, the board works well. Just dont wire it up with 14AWG or 18AWG wire!
As I see it, there are two problems with this: If a wire becomes detached while in-use, that wire could short out to GND, and blow the fuse. Not a good situation, but not catastrophic. A bigger problem would be one where the disconnected wire bridges GND and the upstream side of the fuse, which could have disastrous results! My suggestion would be to re-spin the board:
1 Increase the boards length & width
2 Use a higher-quality binding post, with banana inputs.
3 Space the binding posts farther apart.
4 Increase the spacing between the GND posts & the hot-side of the fuse holders.

Quality control from factory not great.
Plugged in ATX 1, hit swich led flashed on then off. Tried another, same dud. Ok I need a 5 ohm resister to ground from 5v line. Nope still dead. Finally broke out a magnifying glass. Pin 12 from molex clearly not soldered at top of thru hole and three other pins had shorts due to solder whiskers. Resoldered and scraped off whiskers, worked without load resistors. Examine your board before plugging in like I did.

Hooking the to older Compaq power supply and frist gen ATX.
Power Supply #166596-001 - I attached the 9 pin +5 volts aux to Pin 14 The white wire On/Stdby SO on the print circuit board and it came right up I did use the 10 ohm 10 watt on the 5 volt to ground line, I pulled that
from the hard disk power connector. work like a charm. Power Supply #334112-001 - I attached the 9 pin +5 volts aux to Pin 14 The white wire On/Stdby SO on the print circuit board and it came right up I did use the 10 ohm 10 watt on the 5 volt to ground line, I pulled that
from the hard disk power connector. work like a charm. the omly thing different was pin 7 it had a silver/ grey wire, on futher instection on the circuit board it was make Aux Gnd. It had no bearing on getting the supply working. I found on both supplies I didnt need to join pin 11 brown thick wire to pin 2 thin brown wire.Then I used one of the ATX Power Breakout boards, and pulled all my voltages.I did find the switch was inoperable. On the 9 pin to 14 pin I added an On/off switch so I could control the power supply.
I also had a first generation ATX Compaq power supply and the Atx Board worked as advertised
On the new ATX power supplies it would not work, But with a little fiddling with the power supply it would work.

Simple Binding Posts, or, Yes, We Have No Banana
Note to others who may make the same mistake I did: The binding posts on this product are ONLY screw-down, NOT multi-way. In other words, despite the hole in the knobs, these do not accept banana plugs.
That said, it looks like it should be easy enough to replace the existing posts with five-way posts if the studs are the right diameter.
