Early stages of my new rig and just got my new PSU in the mail. Would like to attach my new fans and make sure my PSU works, can I do this and turn on the PSU to see the fans and the PSU work???? Don't have new CPU yet so I can't attach mobo.

Yes, you can short a couple of pins on the PSU's connector that would plugin to the motherboard to test it out. Some PSUs come with a little plug to test it if yours didn't it it's easy enough to make one from a paperclip. Quick & easy video showing how to do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXzrCr0RLm4 .
