    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.

    I remember blowing up one of these puppies in 2006 trying to run a leak leak test with a DDC because I bridged the wrong pins...

    Was probably the saddest day of my young PC building career.

    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...
