by the way i have a Koolance Exos-2 Liquid Cooling System
take the heat sink out of the cooling circuit, and use compressed air to blow it out.  YOu will lose a lot of coolant this way, but if the backup is in the heat sink, which it usually is, you will solve the problem -- just add more coolant to top it up.
I agree. It sounds like you need to flush-clean the cooling system.
Most pundits say this needs to be done every 6 to 12 months. A mix of mouthwash and distilled water works pretty good. Just don't use any harsh cleaners, as they can eat up the tubing and/or leave residue in the blocks, which decreases their heat transfering ablities.
You can run into this problem if you have air in your tubes, which will keep the liquid from moving.  Check your manual on directions to "bleed" your system, and check if the pump is actually working.
