i'm not sure if thats possible, but you just need the motherboard to get the power running.

yet another thread in which you could have used the search function, or google to have easily found the answer.

Instead of getting all crazy with a switch like they show in the picture...just use a paperclip to jump the two spots it indicates and use the switch on the back of the PSU
