It shouldn't hurt your PSU. You can use 2 PSUs for a rig, one to power the mobo etc, and another one just to power your fans and etc ... Here's more info ... http://www.overclock.net/faqs/15751-...two-power.html

well if you just want to power fans then read that FAQ and put a paper clip or something into the pins it tells you to....or just wait for the motherboard....i'd wait for the mobo myself... lol

Just follow the instructions on the link above, can be done w/ a paper clip or a short piece of wire. I would personally use a piece of wire over a paper clip, at least it's insulated, and it'll be safer in case it happens to come in contact w/ metal.
