If you have UV coolant you can also see little leaks with your UV light powered.

Anyway, don't power anything untill after a good leak test. I wish I had followed that advise at first. I didn't and got a couple of drops in my PSU...two week later I was finally up and running when my new PSU got here

I actually use a separate 12V power supply to do mine, but if you don't have it, you can bridge the green and a black wire on your 24 pin to power up the PSU and then just plug in your pump.

Here is the jumpstart instructions:

As tempting as it is...don't rush it..speaking from painful experience here..
Thanks thats helpful
