I think 4 colors is a tad much.

Does the orange sleeve not match the other orange stuff? I was diggin' all the orange. You seem to be minimizing it in the sleeving options.

I kind of like post #122....but I'd swap in black for the color-x, unless there is some other maroon going into the build.

I thought he wanted to go for the orange hot-rod look too, but guess not.

That orange just doesn't seem to blend...Alright going to give this a rest, and give some combinations a try tomorrow...with fresh eyes....

Middle compartment of CL is all maroon/black/grey/white in terms of components. There is a single lonely orange cougar fan.
Ignore cables in this picture and think of cougar orange fan in bottom right on this picture as exhaust

Actually scratch that Orange fan in middle compartment. Its going to be black Cougar PWM fan as Exhaust. Its got a small amount of orange in the rubber padding.

then add an orange sleeving to one of the atx wires..i like post#129...

and its i think better to connect the rear exhaust fan to onboard pwm..it will help to tidy up the build..

also about ur query #3 regarding pump control with temp...i believe u can let aq5xt to increase the pump flow based on another temp sensor connected independently to the aq5xt..like the outlet sensor from cpu block??

also in the flow diagram in post#110 have u connected the flow meter,d5 pump,level sensor independently to the mb usb?? if so y cant u connect everything to the aq5xt then a single usb from aq5 to the mb??..

Comments from AQ Support..

I have purchased 3 x 3 port USB hubs to connect various equipment including all AQ products to them.
Someone suggested that I only connect the  AQ5-Pro-USB from each loop to the USB hub--  and not the Pump-Adaptor & Flow Meter to USB hub.  Because they are saying any firmware update to downstream AQ products from AQ5 will go through Aquabus.  Not sure on this…  I have to connect the Pump itself via USB ; so talking only about Pump-Adaptor and Flow Meter.
no idea what you have read there but none of these devices can be flashed via aquabus. A firmware update is always done via USB. Each device can be identified by its serial number so normally it should be no problem to use all devices at the same time and to flash only a specific one.

The pump will have static power straight from PSU and I will set the speed through Aquasuite “Once”. Just adjust fan speed depending on water temperature.
Yes, you set everything once and the pump keeps it. as default value these pumps work with 100%. When you start them they run at the lowest mode for around two seconds and then will speed up to 100%.

you would only adjust the speed of the fans control the overall temperature. Changing the speed of the pumps to adjust the flow rate has almost no impact on the cooling performance when they already run at a normal speed.

I do not need 2x G1/4 modules (Art.Nr.: 71160) that I bought separately. As the D5 Pump Adaptor( Art.Nr.: 52225) can read temp and send that information via aquabus
Yes, the pumps has an integrated temperature sensor which you can read out via aquabus.

I do not need another 2x G1/4 modules  as the AQ Flow Meter (Art.Nr.: 71215) also can read temperature and send that information via aquabus
Yes, it also has an internal temperature sensor.


Each fan is max 0.3A, and I will have maximum of 8 fans per AQ5. But only 3x on each channel (Fan1, Fan2 & Fan3).  In the diagram below only radiator fans are shown and not case fans. Is the load OK for AQ5 to control and change via the temperatures i.e. Fans go faster if water temperature is warmer?
Should be no problem if the passive heatsink has some space to breath or there is some slight air flow in this area.

Aquabus Connections:
> you have to connect everything to the aquabus high speed port. None of the used devices uses the low speed aquabus. So you will need some of these y-adapters:
> And just to be sure: the mps controller in the aqualis will not be connected to the mps controller in the pump. Of course you can also use a y-adapter there but there are not two aquabus ports available like on a poweradjust controller where you can connect everything in series.

Posting new layout here:
Loop 2 is identical to loop 1 shown below. 9/28 is shipping date for new AQ5. sadsmiley.gif

Thanks Prathik7
Looking at options for sleeving...have new color ordered through MDPC...for other thoughts to blend with tubing/sleeve for tubing. will post when I figure that out.. to see what can be done here..

yes on exhaust fan...Thanks for confirming thoughts.

dynamic pump speed control not necessary per aq. Just do it once thru aquasuite and leave it.

firmware upgrade only possible through direct usb.


On a separate note:
PerformancePCS has my AQ5-Pro...need to go local instead of international in these orders (now that AQ available here). Plus Hank at PPCS is helpful; took back my Red-Monsoon fittings without blinking when I said it wasn't being used.

Shipping LT /Kryos/G1/4 back to Aquatuning.US is going to cost me $180 in shipping for UPS for $200 worth of parts, with no gaurantee that it will pass customs. Cheapest option is $120 via USPS.


Thinking of painting all white Fittings with a color dependant on tube sleeving.

Yes...not necessary...but nice if you want to set a profile that you can turn on that turns all fans and pumps down to minimum. Or maximum. You can't do one profile that changes everything unless its connected to the AQ5 via aquabus.

And for firmware updates....you are talking maybe once a year. Tops. Not all of the software updates have new firmware. Its pretty easy to plug a USB cable in once a year to update the firmware.
