    Hi
    I want to temp up my new Antec 550w. Is there a set of wires on the big ATX connector that need to be shorted to get the PSU to work?

    Thanks
    Marc

    From http://www.dansdata.com/top420p4.htm

    First, power the thing up. You can make an ATX power supply that isn't connected to a motherboard turn on by grounding pin number 14 on the big motherboard power connector. It's easy to spot that pin, because it's the only one with a green wire going to it.

    Use any handy bit of wire - like the paper clip in this picture - to connect pin 14 to any ground contact. The ground contacts are the ones with the black wires going to them. Presto, the PSU will turn on.
