As most have said, just use a paper clip. However, take the time to look up the pinout diagram for your specific PSU. You want to cross the PSON and any ground (GND) wire. For most modern PSU's, that's green and black, as others have said. However, if you're like me and ripped an old PSU out of a Dell so you don't risk frying your real PSU by mistake, the PSON lead is actually a gray wire. While green and black are pretty standard, some may differ a bit. Take the time to be certain, since shoving a paper clip in the PSU will probably not be covered under RMA. Other tips, use a GFI outlet and a surge protector.

But if you are like me, and you're scared of using a full metal clip (scared of 'electricity flowing into your finger') then just get one of those plastic coated ones and strip the ends of it and stick it into the green and black terminals (only 1 green and any black)
so we just place the paperclip inside pin and don't have to do anything on the cable?

Generally speaking the 12v side of the PSU will not cause any safety issues on dry skin. Just don't soak your hands in salty water or put any wires in your mouth. Oh, and don't push the pins into your thumbs.

If you are still concerned you can use a bit of insulated wire with stripped ends.

If that is still scary use the radioman's rule; one hand inside the enclosure only.

If that is still bothering you, maybe water cooling is not for you...

One small piece of advice, if your PSU has a switch, dont flick it on and off quickly, you may short the PSU.

You have to wrap the 24 pin connector with electric tape just to make sure.
