post #101 of 126
Thank you for the reply! I really appreciate the help! Seems like a XT is about to be ordered on payment day!
post #102 of 126
Hi

Great post

ok
i already ordered a Aquaero XT, 3 x PA2 Ultra, inline temp sensor and a MPS400

what i need to connect on aquaero is 2 D5-vario , 12 x Corsair Sp120 High performance and 7 x Bitfenix 120mm spectre pro fan

the fan draw 0.18amp

this is the way i planned all connection

aquaero XT
Fan 1 = 3 x SP120 (0.54amp)
Fan 2 = 3 x SP120 (0.54amp)
Fan 3 = 3 x SP120 (0.54amp)
Fan 4 = 3 x SP120 (0.54amp)

for a total of 2.16amp

PA2-1 = D5 Vario (plan tu updrade to the new aquacomputer D5)
PA2-2 = D5 Vario (plan tu updrade to the new aquacomputer D5)
Pa2-3 = 7 x Spectre pro (1.26amp)

the mps400 will be on usb (hard to find aquabus 4 pin cable and spliters in Canada, for a order of $30, its around $45 and up for shipping, ridiculous....)

maybe im just littlebit overkill but i have some plan to update to more fan and pump

1 - question: do i need a waterblock on aquaero for this setup or the original heat sink is enough with 2.16amp??

2 - any way to have step by step connecting and configuration guide (like step to change ID, upgrade firmware on PA2 and aquaero

3 - if i leave the MPS400 on usb, no need to connect it on aquaero?

4 - possibility to have a highflow flow meter, witch one is best for me, High flow meter connected to PA2 or the mps400 to usb or aquaero 5 xt?

5 - i saw on some e-store or on aquacomputer online shop some filter foil for add some color to the screen, but no red anywhere, can i use any red filter on market ?

i have a lot of question but its enough for now

thansk for your help

1) If you have plans to use more fans in the future then get the water block if your running water or the 20mm Heatsink if your only air cooling.

2) In proccess of doing a setting up guide HERE It may help out some.

3) If you have the MPS on USB then no need for it too be connected to the Aquaero via Aquabus (but it wont show up in Aquasuite 2012) It will be as a stand alone unit..

4) Depends which flow meter you require, If you know roughly what your flow will be then go for the MPS range which come in three flavours (the 100 = 20>100 L/ph...The 200 = 40>200 L/ph & the 400 = 80>400 L/ph) If your not too sure then go for either the standard High Flow G¼" & connect it to the Aquaero Flow header or use the Newer High Flow USB G¼" which can be connected to your motherboard USB header or Via the Aquabus, Both these High flow models read a range of around 40>1500 L/ph... The choice is yours smile.gif..

5) Know nothing about coloured filters e.t.c..

All th best

Thanks

yes i plan for more fan but not on Aquaero 5, i will add PA2, only the fan in my description will be on aquaero, no more fan on it

and for the flow sensor, maybe i dont understand correctly but on another forum and aquacomputer forum, if i connect the MPS400 on usb, i will see it in aquasuite 2012 but in new tab, not under auqaero 5 tab, and impossblie to see it in the aquaero 5 XT screen, im right?
post #105 of 126
yes..sorry I mean't it will show up in its own tab as a stand alone componant I beleive as you said redface.gif..

I should add, now I have more time (I had to shoot out earlier & was rushing..sorry about that), If you use the USB alone on the MPS sensors then you can get away with using just a three wire Aquabus cable (as the power for the MPS is being provided by the USB. If you use the four pin Aquabus Cable then the MPS will get it's power from the fourth wire from the four pin Aquabus cable.

It depends how you want to control things really as to how you connect the MPS sensors, by connecting Via the USB you find some functions that are on the MPS are USB based, such as being able alter the flow calibration & I beleive the Curve control selection, I know some people run the Flow MPS sensors using both connection types at the same time, but it's down to what & how you decide what info or control you require once it has been calibrated & set up.

If you decide to run both connection types then remember you will only need the supplied 3 pin cable that comes with the MPS Sensor, But If you decide to just use the Aquabus for connection then I would reccomend getting the Four Pin Aquabus cable for the MPS sensor to draw power from..

As for what you actually need, you just need a molex > 3-pin converter for the pump, if you connected it to the AE5, and Y connectors/extensions for the fans.

*Considering you want to run the fans on it too, this may be a stretch, so you may have to get a PowerAdjust 2 just for the pump and connect it via Aquabus to the Aquaero.

This is exactly what I have done, but I do not see the Pump in the Aquasuite at all. How do I get it to show up so I can control it ?

Oh wow, I posted that ages ago... but I don't think you can get it to show up in the Aquasuite unless your pump has a tach sensor and wire.

I have 2 D5's from aquacomputer my question is can i run these pumps @24v and control them from the aquaero 5 xt
post #109 of 126
The sticker already tells you the answer: yes, you can run it with 24V and you can still control it through the aquaero of course.
post #110 of 126
thanks shoggy these should be my last two questions all the specs I see for this pump appear to be at the 12v range so can I assume then that it's doubled @24v?

My second question the new usb high flow meters (>1200lph) are they mechanical?
