[99% complete] Rig AKA "The Hamster Network".. Constant run.... - Page 8

post #71 of 87
Yeah nice a fiber line, we're just starting to see that in a regular basis here in Australia...this is the pic I was referring to when you said switch.

work_log_8_12.jpg

Because in that pic it definitely says 10/100 Mb, but if referring to another then cool bananas.

yeah as for nickel plating I had some clouding from vinegar on my Phobya 25mm extender and a little polish an bobs your uncle I want/need a new one... So BP blocks are OK but not stellar ?
For me I am using universal blocks for my GPU's and dated ones at that, I wish I had the luxury to go fullcover but the added average of $270 on top of a pair of new cards is way out for me.

I know what you mean, blocks + fittings = expensive.. but I think they are worth it, cooler temps, quieter and peace of mind... I am in a similar boat as you, I don't want to buy a new top of the line GPU everytime it comes out and have to replace water blocks everytime, I only buy them when I can no longer run my games the way I want them to..

Perhaps you can just buy a top of the line GPU + block, it'll surely last you for a long time, unless you gotta have the latest and greatest, I think it's worth the investment.

oh that switch, Yes you are right, it's 100 only, POE.. was going to use it for my IP Cam, but ended up just using the power brick.. It's sitting on the shelf assisting the bitspower block doing a very important task.. Collecting Dust.. I'm sure I'll find some use for it someday, that or a friend pops by and decides he/she wants to take it with them...

Thanks Frank! Another question smile.gif

So, all the PA2 are slaves of the AQ5, then I suppose that any temperature reading from AQ5 sensor an order can be sent to any of the PA2 to react to that temperature reading.

I was thinking doing the following:

* AQ5: All radiator fans (CH1, CH2, CH3) - PWM to pumps (CH4) - Temperature sensors - LED stripes - FLOW meter ...
CH1 - CH2 and CH3 will require 1,2A // 14,4W máx per channel, that makes 3,6A and 43,2W for the whole unit
Leds require only 0,4A so the final load for the AQ5 is about 4A.

* 2 x PA2: Each PA2 will power a pump, but the PWM will be sent from AQ5.
* 1 x PA2: Just for 2 fans from the front intake since I run out of channels...

I'm putting most of the load to the AQ5 because of the waterblock which I believe will make all run smooth.

Another thought, If I were to link different rated fans into the same Aquaero Fan channel putting the "weakest" of them to send the RPM signal would be a bad idea?
The strong fans will never work at 100% since the lower rated will be sending the RPM signal (just to not toast it sending too many A biggrin.gif). Could this work? Was thinking link the front intakes plus some 40mm fans all together...

what about selling one of those blocks? I have much more important tasks it can perform for me. biggrin.gif

The actual load limits for the AQ5 are:
Aquearo
1-4 channel
19.8W / 1.65A per channel
combined 60w / 5A

Power Adjust 2
5-10 channel
25w / 2.08A per channel

Temperature Threshold: 85c - 95c

Got that off shoggy himself, so it's accurate.. Dont forget if you use more than one PA2, you have to use the old aquasuite setup 4.72.00 and change each "id" to 50, 01, 52, etc... or the Aquaero won't recognize them.

As for the PA2 max threshold, I think that is built into the PA2 itself, in theory this would only make sense as the PA2 can be used as a standalone product with the old aquasuite_setup_4.72.00..

Regarding the attaching a lower RPM fan to a Higher one, It should work is my guess, you'd have to try that one yourself. smile.gif

sorry, I don't sell second hand stuff as they are not worth the trouble or headache involved, I also don't have the original thermal pads anymore, they got pretty thrashed during the whole install/uninstall process... Perhaps I can contact bitspower and ask if they can help replace those for me and I can sell one to your for mere pennies on the dollar + shipping then... I'll keep you posted via PM...

Thanks for your help, much appreciated Frank smile.gif

How does the standby connection from the Aquaero work?
Do I have to make that cable and plug it to a power source?

Thanks smile.gif

Anytime... smile.gif

A power cable does exist, looks at this

aquaero power connect - 24 pin ATX standby power / ATX break, or If you are adventurous, you can modify your existing one.

Those side fans are connected to a 360 radiator. smile.gif As for bleeding, it's pretty easy for me.. trick was remove the baffle from the lower reservoir entirely, use the long plug, install the "U" pipe on the top inlet/outlet, install the bleed pipe in the top reservoir, bleeds out in 20-30 minutes..

EDIT: A pic means 1000 words.

Hi Frank, a quick question about how you connected yours fans together in multiples. Have you got any pics showing your wiring of the radiator fans? As in 3 fans to 1 connector etc... please...
