hi Rajiv JI
1. are these CPU SMPS, if yes you may have to add a load capacitor inorder to make them work, just search on youtube you will get a lot of videos on it
2. if they are normal SMPS like Chinese drivers, then what are the output volt and Ampere of the SMPS
3. You have to add 1w 1 ohm Resistor in series to each led before adding them in parallel connections
4. if they are 12 v 1 AMP led then you would need 5 AMP 12v = 60 wat SMPS for each let stip
