This is for a large one of project which will have several pumps in play and not have to push volume too far\hard...
I use two aquarium pumps, 10-20$ each. I manually plug and unplug my pumps from the wall ^^ atm. take note that my external USB fan is always on, if my computer has power even while off. So USB pumps will not turn off when you power down your computer. (maybe you can change that via bios)
You can get DC pumps with a converter. You can get PSU 4 pin connector pump. (4 pin will turn off with your computer) You can get a usb to 4 pin connector converter. You can plug in your power strip into a light switch type deal. Ebay n amazon have it all.
Of my two pumps I like this one, it does not need water in the tubes to start pumping. I bought a adapter from home depot to make it fit my tubes.
