PC power supplies require a minimal load to source output voltages inside the specification range. Some will check if a load is connected and switch off outputs with no load. So each of the 3.3, 5, and 12 V rails should be connected to some kind of load.

For the 5 and 12 V rails I would use an old drive (floppy, CD/DVD, or hard disk). The 3.3 V rail can be connected to a load resistor (e.g. 3.3 Ohm, 5 Watt). Finally you must connect the Power On signal (Pin 16/14 for ATX-24/-20) to GND.

It might be necessary to connect an additional load resistor to the 12 V rail because the load may be not enough when the motor of a conncted drive is not running.

Additional information can be found at the Wikipedia[^] page (see also the links at the bottom).
