Default Testing Antec 900 Case fans question

Well,I just got my Antec 900 case (yay =D) for my new build. I won't be getting my other components for a while, but I wanted to test my case's fans/LED's to make sure that they work. I have a spare PSU, so would I be able to just use a paperclip from the green wire to a ground wire on the 24-pin mobo connector? Would the fans be enough load for the PSU, or should I hook up a cd-rom drive for a load on the PSU as well? Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

I do this, to test out the airflow of my fans. You can just connect the fans themselves. It's enough load for the PSU.

Woo, hooked it all up/tested the fans...and they work great! I tried 'em on all 3 settings each, and they put out quite a bit of air even on Low. I think I'll really enjoy that case when I finally get my build done =D.

3 - 120mm fans along with 1 - 200mm fan as the top exhaust fan, can give plenty of airflow.

Which is why I chose the 900 =P. May also add another 120mm for the side vent, since there's a hold for it.
