Help building my gaming PC

Hey i just had a quick question. I just bought my PSU and i was wondering if I could hook it up and test out the fans etc.. but I only have a mobo, ram, hdd, and cd rom installed no CPU. Can i still hook up my power supply? i just wanted to check before i did so i didnt hurt anything
Thanks,
Cody

  1. You can do the paperclip method to jump start your PSU.

    1) Get a Paperclip
    2) Connect one end into the Green Wire Slot on the 20/24-pin ATX connector
    3) Connect the other end into a Black Wire Slot on 20/24-pin ATX connector
    4) PSU is now jumped...

  3. It won't boot without a CPU installed, so you won't really see anything.
