Looking for somebody that has some ideas or knows how to short a computer power supply. I need to power up a couple of fans that are keeping my routers cool.

Was suggested to use a paper clip and insert into 2 pins of the mobo connector.

Zippy,

How do you intend to 'short' a power supply in order to power up a couple of fans ? Shorting the power supply will either blow its fuse or trigger any auto-short protection it might have!

On the other hand, I'm guessing that you might be refering to shorting the 'soft-power' in order to switch it on;

Can you please clarify?

Cheers mate,

A scapegoat is often as welcome as a solution...never memorize what you can look up.
