Fan/Pump power options for external setup.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I am building an external cooling setup that will house up to 18 AP-15's and a MCP35x. 6 AP-15's in a push/pull config per GTX360, and then up to 6 more (3 front, 3 rear) pulling cool air into the case. The MCP35X is PWM but I think the AP-15's are not.

So what are my options for powering all this? I am considering going with a separate power supply ( i have an old 450w sitting here) so that the cooling loop will continue to run even if the PC powers off (ie for reboots or to ensure the water is moving before the PC powers on.)

I'd like to be able to monitor temps, fan speeds and coolant flow also. So I am thinking something like this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...tl=g47c121s424 or http://www.frozencpu.com/products/76...tl=g47c121s424 for the fan power and something like http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...?tl=g47c17s286 to control the fans and pump.

How would you control and power 2 banks of 6 AP-15's, plus 2 banks of 3 AP-15's and a PWM capable pump?

Lastly, the pass through threaded temp probes, they work ok? thinking 4 of them, one on each inlet/outlet of the rads to track temp of water going in, vs coming out.

So after some more research i think the Lamptron FC5 is how I am going to do it. I read that Typhoon AP-15's draw about 1W pwer each and the FC5 is 30w per channel. So I am going to run 6 AP-15's per channel with 1 left over for the pump.

So I will have:

channel 1 - 6 AP-15's and temp probe on Rad #1's inlet.
channel 2 - 6 AP-15s tem temp probe on Rad #2's outlet
channel 3 - remaining 6 Ap-15's (3 at each end of the rad box) and an ambient temp probe.
channel 4 - MCP35X Pump and a res temp probe.

is that the right way to do it ?
