    Hey guys,
    Here is a newb question since I havent done it before.
    I just got my TruePower 550W in the mail and I want to test it to make sure it works.
    So what has to be connected to check if it works or not.

    well, any ATX PSU can be started up by doing a bridge between the gray and green, or was it black and green, well aslong as it dosnt spark, and then just get one of those multimeters and start mesuring,
