General WC/PSU Jumping questions.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
PSU Question:
I have to use the PSU trick to turn on my PSU to get the pump to run. But my PSU doesn't have an I/0 on the back so here is what I was thinking. Putting the paperclip on right in the 24 pin with the PSU unplugged and off then turn off my power strip plug in my PSU and turn on my power strip. Then turn my strip off fill up the res, turn it back on. And so on, is that ok? Or should I do this.


Unplugged PSU and off power strip, plug pump in then plug in PSU then insert the paperclip with the PSU in idle. Then to turn off turn off power strip, take out the paperclip and redo to turn back on. This leans more to the guide which correct me if I am mistaken says to have the PSU on in the back before plugging in the paperclip. (Are PSUs with I/0 on then in idle with on [I] switch on?)

Kill Coil:
I just twist it into a weird shape and drop it in the res, correct?

Cleaning:
How should I and with what clean my WC parts before I use them?

These are the only few things I am iffy on I know everything else. Thanks! This will be the last thread I post on this I promise xD

Use the paperclip as a switch, have the pump plugged in and the psu plugged in, just insert and remove the paperclip. Yes to the kill coil, and clean your rad by putting water in, shaking it a lot, getting the water out, putting new water, until you get clear water.

Hey.

1) I would use the power strip on/off switch as the power on/off to cycle the pump as you fill the loop

2) Yes, the killcoil is inserted into the reservoir.

3) Clean the parts with regular tap water, then rinse very thoroughly with distilled water. Or, if you have enough distilled water use that for the entire pre-cleaning process.

1. Paper clip on the power supply works great.

2. I twisted my kill coil into a coil.... (make sure its bigger than the res opening)

Use a pencil to make the coil by wraping the silver around.

3. I always use boiling vinegar and then distilled to clean my parts.

1. You can get a special connector if you prefer. link

2. Depending on res some have anti cyclone preventions. Fx a tupe inside the res. You can wrap the coil around this if available.

3. I have used heated tap water (not too hot you risk damaging the power coating) for flushes then rinsed with destilled water 2 or 3 times. Fill the res then plug it up and shake it hard without dropping. It is a good idea to empty it out in a bowl so you can check for debris/dirt. I even used a bit of dish washing soap on mine (not need to rinse it a lot after with clean (tap) water.
