Thanks!

That would be too much of a load for the A5. Consider getting PA2's.

If you are ok with them all running at same speed and only being able to monitor speed of one then you can connect them all to channel 4 of Aquaero with a pwm splitter

I'll get the PA2s to push them since I know the Aquaero can only put out about 2A. Thanks for the recommendation on the PWM splitter, didn't know that existed smile.gif.

If you use PWM control for MCP35X pumps Aquaero won't be loaded at all, power for pumps comes from molex connectors. If you control PWM pumps with voltage as with PA2's you lose a lot of their rpm range

I think I will get 2 2 way PWM splitters and put 2 pumps on one PWM channel, power them off of a molex. This way I can control 2 pumps discretely. I kind of wish the Aquero had 4 PWM outputs as opposed to just the two. Oh well smile.gif Thanks mm67 I appreciate it!

^^The Aquaero only has ONE PWM channel, it's the F4 fan channel. Those 2 PWM headers you see on the board are only 16KHz and that isn't sufficient for controlling fans OR pumps. I believe those headers are meant for temp controlled lighting (some1 please correct me if i'm wrong on the lighting). You definitely don't want to connect fans or pumps to those 2 headers though.

As far as 4 PWM pumps though, just get a 4 way PWM splitter. As long as they're all powered via molex to your PSU, it's all the same to the Aquaero. It'll be receiving 1 RPM signal from the splitter and sending 1 PWM signal to the splitter which is then sent to all 4 pumps. Just make sure they're all powered from your PSU and it won't add any kind of strain on the Aquaero. Obviously all 4 of these will be controlled as 1 pump, but if you're planning on running 4 MCP35x's, i assume you're going for redundancy in your loop.
So the 4 MCP35x pumps will be powered by their molex connectors to the PSU. Then all 4 of them will have their 4 pin connectors connected to a 4 way PWM splitter. That splitter will be connected to Fan Channel 4. That's the only fan/pump header with PWM control.

The absolutely only reason I haven't bought an Aquaero yet is because there's only 1 PWM channel. I'm still planning on getting one but it does suck that i have to choose if i want to PWM control my MCP35x (Apogee Drive II) OR my fans that cost alot because they have PWM.

I wish to God they would develop an addon that would give even 1 more PWM channel. Even with solutions like buying an extra Aquaero 5 LT, as soon as you hook it up to another Aquaero 5 you lose the PWM capability of it. With alot of the better higher end fans using PWM control nowadays and in the future, I feel like that should be a no brainer.

I hope Shoggy reads this post. PLEASE consider creating some sort of PWMAdjust addon unit!!! =)
