Default Test fans without Motherboard?

I have my case and PSU already set up(im building a computer btw)

and I wanna test all my fans to see how the airflow is gonna work

so is there any way like to do that without the MB, Im guessing not

and BTW what connectors from the PSU do i connect to the Fans, there's so many 4 pin connectors I dont know wich to use and which way to put them in

if you havent noticed this is my first comp LOL building that is

Don't think the power supply will turn on without a mobo in the case. So the answer is no.

There is guys! Not to fear! It's a real easy mod and I did it myself infact. Let me get you the link to the site. It allows you to make a 'Test Psu' where all you do is plug in the PSU and your fans and hit the switch on the PSU and BAM! you got power without the mobo. I needed it myself about 2 weeks ago.

Enjoy! Took me about 5 mins to do. Real easy like.
