Turning on power supply then plugging into motherboard

Would it be safe to do the following?:

Turn on power supply by shorting it (green and black wires)
Then plug the CPU and motherboard cables into a motherboard.

My motherboard isn't turning on (no beeps or anything), so would this be a viable option?

  1. Are you asking if you should connect a shorted PSU to your motherboard? The answer is NO.

    Is this a new build?
