It's done during testing phase to check for leaks and make sure everything runs accordingly.

Am I missing something?

I bolded the part of the post that I didn't understand what you meant by it. I know what a kill coil is.

can I just unplug the 24-Pin ATX power cable?
which is what I didn't know what you meant by it.

If you have an old PSU laying around I find bleeding a lot w/ a seperate PSU is a lot easier. That way you don't need to disconnect all the cables from everything in your computer. Just plug the pump in to the spare psu, then jump it.

The 24-pin ATX motherboard cable: I was wondering whether I can just unplug it from the PSU or jump it? I'll just jump it since I don't have a spare PSU.

Jump it... green wire to any black wire... easiest is the black wire 2 over from the green wire. Done deal. Just make sure it's not gonna pop out of there and short out on anything (it's almost happened to me)

Kill coil is pointless unless you leave your rig off for weeks at a time. Algae isn't going to grow in moving liquid and a tiny bit of glycol in your loop will prevent anything from growing which is exactly what that Dazmode stuff is.

The hardest thing is that I can't tell which is green and which is black with respect to the Corsair AX850 PSU. It's all black!

Bleeding 24-pin ATX jump start connector for power supply

Grab one of these the next time you order water cooling stuff. Problem solved.

Kaptcrunch posted a picture didn't he? If someone counts the wires for you from the clip side it will be the same. I am working outta town until Friday so if someone hasn't posted by then I will.

Thanks bud but that item is sold out. I found a forum on OCN that shows how to jump the AX850 PSU. Looks like I am all set. Also, can I forgo the mixture that comes with the kit and just use DW?

Yeh DW is fine as long as you keep your rig running more often than not. Flush all your components with DW as well as it's never a bad idea. DW is cheap as all hell too so it's of little consequence if you waste some down the drain. I've decided to use the dongle I bought from Daz to keep my loop pumping when I'm away but I wont have to keep the mobo/vid powered up.

Grats on the cheapo PSU its the easiest way.

Thanks for advice man. What else am I missing here? Do I need a T-line adapter for draining the loop when I want to expand it? I will also try and see if I can grab a sleeved cable kit to help easy the mounting of a 45mm thick radiator at the top. Why? Because I think I can cool 2 cards and a CPU using 2x240mm radiators. Am I wrong to think this way?

P.S: I just realised that I can take out the PSU from Wife's PC and use that to run the test tomorrow. But, I still will buy a small PSU just for future work. Muahahahaha!
