Well it won't affect performance, the major concern if it will work.

Try it out...

You can short the powersupply on but that won't tell you much if you don't have anything hooked up to it to tell if its outputting anything.

just connect a paper clip into the green wire slot, and any black one, and plug it in. it wont shock you or anything if you touch the paper clip either

Go to your BIOS and check your voltages across the 12V rail etc.

BTW if your if your BIOS is showing that your PSU is putting out 12.4V on the 12V rail and a program tells you that it is putting out 11.4, then the BIOS is right and the program is wrong.
