shorting my psu?


just wondering if it's safe for the psu to short pin 14 (i think it's that one so i can test voltages.

i know what u may be thinking, but i dont have a computer to test it on right now.

Thanks, Digital Pimp

No, its no different than having it plugged into the mobo. The jumpering only sends the "power on" signal to the PSU.
