    Erm... the fans won't spin unless the PSU gets the power on signal from the motherboard that things are go... which gets it from the case power switch.

    You can trick it into switching things on, but I don't know which pins it is.

    Even shorting the pins to start the PSU may not work as the fan won't put much load on the PSU, and it will shut down again. You need to attach it to something thats going to draw a decent amount of power to test it properly.
