Condescension much? It's not a power supply in the context that we use the term power supply. It's just easier than using an entire atx power supply unit to power one or two components, jumped or not.

I use one of those small power supplies as well. Works great powering a pump for filling and initial bleeding as well as testing fans or other accessories. Much easier than pulling plugs/connectors from the MB, hard drives etc.

Usually the pump is being a paired with a computer, at least on this type of forum, so there is already going to be an atx psu. It's something that will be needed for the build. Might as well use that instead of getting one of those brick PSUs for laptops just to power a pump. If there's already one available it can be easier.

In the first post by the OP, it was specified that no MB was being used, and that this was being used for a project not in a computer. So, suggesting a simpler solution than an ATX PSU makes a lot of sense for his needs.
