I have that kit too, you will get a build-up on the waterblock and the radiator,

-I ran hydrogen peroxide in it, one end in a milk jug full of it, the other end in the same bottle, I just ran it then shut it off a few times (by jumping the power connector and only powering the pump) then left it off for 10 minutes and ran it for a few hours.

-I then looped the hydrogen peroxide->pump->radiator->same bottle of hydrogen peroxide.

-disassembled the waterblock, cleaned it with alchohol then hydrogen peroxide.

-ran the Hydrogen peroxide the system. Rinsed it by running distilled water through it for a day or two.

-drained it, reassembled it, added other coolant.

-The thermaltake stuff is garbage, mine looked like lake water, it originally looked like a light green anti-freeze. Use another brand, or distilled water with anti-biological stuff.

-or you might want to go with DuckieHo's plan, mine might be flawed.

Take the main 20-24 pin mobo power connector off and jump the green wire to any of the black ones on ..A paper-clip works perfectly, I always tape it down so there is no chance of it falling out....

I might try that, if I never post here again, it's because I died.

Is there any other way, like with a switch or something...

There is another option I use all the time, a 12v power supply. I have an old Radioshack 12V PSU I bought for like $30 many years ago that good for about 60 watts. I use it all the time for bleeding my system or testing fans, etc. That way I can leave the MB header plugged in and all I have to do is disconnect the pump and plug it in to my alternate PSU.
