Using an old PSU to power externl pump and rad fans for closed loop.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to set up a custom loop (water) and locate the pump and radiator outside the office. The idea is to use my old PSU to power the fans and pump but I can't figure out how to trip it's ignition seeing as it's not plugged into an MB. Anybody know which pins to short to make this happen? I could probably figure it out from the schematics but I'm too lazy.

Ideas??

Thanks guys. You probably saved me my PSU some minor electrical burns and lots of harassment from my wife!
