Lol, Reminds me of my younger days when I used a paper clip to soft reset the Commodore 64 with one, in order to type in 'Poke & Peek' cheat values for games, from magazines and then use the 'SYS' command to restart the game.
I use one of these puppies:
which comes with the added bonuses of an optional resistive load (for PSUs that simply won't turn on without load), on-off switch, posts for ground, 12V, 5V, 3.3V, -12V, and -5V (if your PSU has it), and status LEDs. 'S a neat bit of kit.

That's defiantly a Hiper Type-R! Nearly got our self's into some bother with the rozzers over a few of these once.
Oh god you're right. Hiper were even worse >_>
*PSU Testing PTSD*
Its the fact you had to lop half of the PSU Case of a Coolermaster Wavemaster out to get the stupid thing in, because they never listed the dimensions of the PSU with the god-awful modular connectors on there...
