My experience was as long as there was some airflow it was OK, I don't think your rig is really going to be stressing that PSU. You won't need to touch any of the internals, just the fan wires - PM me if you need, I can tell you how it comes apart.
Thank you I will

Why not just sell it and get a quiet 500w PSU...
Thank you for your concern. But also I like to mod, I also modded case for better airflow and added foam, did a HDD suspension and so on, will post pictures.

It'll work. Don't worry about it.
As for the primary side capacitor. They don't hold charge for that long. I'd say keeping it off for a good half hour should be more than enough.
Thank for the info will do. But I was hoping I could just stick in the 3 pin oh well, more modding for me

Hit the power button a few times on the PC just to make sure.
On the first attempt you'll see the lights and everything flash for a moment, then turn off.
Nothing on the next few tries.
Then leave it overnight on a table.
You're safe to go.
Very very nice. I was actually going to attach a light bulb to the molex and let it discharge, also the light bulb is a nice indicator if its fully discharged, but your idea is much better and easier to do. Thank for the tip.
