How to test a power supply unit ...

It has begun to make an unpleasant noise (something vibrating), and I need to check it outside the mobo. Will a short somewhere make it work without plugging it to a mobo?. ... but where?. Regards. More about : test power supply unit tlmck a b ) Power supply November 11, 2007 5:46:32 PM I have found my Antec PSU tester to be the easiest way. Here are some others as well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... A digital Volt meter is also handy to have. Here is a pinout of the main connector. Black wires are ground. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATX V01 November 11, 2007 6:10:21 PM I didn't mean that. The problem is that the PSU does no work without a mobo, and I need to check it outside the case and without a mobo. So I need to make a short or something in the wires of the PSU to make it work by itself, open it and find the source of the noise. Thank you, anyway. Regards.
