If it's not connected to a mobo, you need to make it think that it is. Take some heavier guage wire, and bridge the green wire connector on the 24pin to a ground (black) wire, and ur good to go.

thanks for the comments.

Yea, your PSU won't work unless it is plugged into the motherboard (well, there is ways...) so yea, don't get your panties tangled too soon, wait till the egg brings the mobo.
