Default Water cooling

Okay so heres the problem I have. My friend brought over his rig to try to get water cooling to work in it and we are having a **** of a time getting it to work. What it does is it blinks this blue light and won't start the system or fans that came with the kit. I think the problem is a low psu amount he has a 480 w psu and I think it needs to be a tad higher. What do you all think?

I have no idea what your trying to say...

System specs, water cooling system specs, power supply brand, and a clearer explanation of the problems your having.

Use distilled water, never tap water, and if you do, make sure you add some kind of algecide, either antifreeze, or copper sulfate.

I use distilled water mixed with a copper sulfate additive to keep anything form growing in my loop.
