I have a small little PSU that I'd like to use for hard drives that I use with USB converters BUT there's no way to turn it on without the mobo....

I've tried the paper clip method but I still need a switch apparently. If I were to wire in a switch of my own which wires would I use?

Don't capacitors store electricity sometimes?

Yes they store electricity long after unplugging it from the outlet.

PSUs can store enough power to instantly kill you for a very long time, unplugging it isn't going to do ****.

Its a pretty simple question, can I get anything besides horrible attempts at jokes?
