It is possible to "jump start" a PSU.

Look here:

ETA: I prefer to use a single strand insulated wire rather than the paper clip method used in that FAQ.

Any time mate!

I think you'll be just fine.

I was a little nervous the first time I tried it too, hence the insulated wire.

I do this all the time to power up random items. I have a TEC powered but a 400watt PSU sitting on my desk at work. It keeps my sonda cold. If i leave for 30 minutes the bottom turns into a slushy.

There is another guide on it in my Sig.
