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.

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.
