I missed this party, better late than never. :rolleyes:

To test if a PSU is alive out-of-comp, we jump-start it with a paperclip or piece of wire bridging the green wire (PS-ON) with any black wire (ground) on the ATX20/24 connector.

Though the Corsair CX430 is miles better than the original junk that came with your comp, beware that on this 'entry-level' model Corsair most graciously fits low quality chinese crapacitors in the secondary, that might not last long once warranty expires (3 years for the CX430 I believe).
