Because it could kill you would be enough reason for me to stay away from doing that. I would outright refuse to open up a PSU. Yeah, even with it unplugged. Negative on that from me.

The PSU fan, at least the ones I've seen have connectors sort of like the ones on a video card with the stock HSF, its that tiny small plastic kind, not the regular 3 pin.

@trog, before I ever knew what a PSU can do to a person, I blindly just opened one up thinking it was alright, thank god it was discharged because I touched EVERYTHING inside and luckily I didn't get zapped.

It is really dangerous to open a PSU keep that in mind, if you are going to let it discharge a LONG time, couple of hours at least.

Yeah the capacitors in a PSU can retain a charge for a gooooood long while after being unplugged. They can hold enough of a charge to do quite a bit of damage.

In short: there's a better chance of winged monkeys flying out of my butt than me opening up a PSU.

Even unplugged, the capacitors inside hold a charge and need some time until they completely discharge, usually a few hours.

LOL also, those are extra small

Following up on my recent failure, I have some good news. Today we tried again with a different pane of glass and ,with more measuring, got it to work. The outcome is exactly how I pictured it !
