Not an AQ diehard...but really not sure what all the hype is about AQ5's not handling load...
Doing fine with VRM's imo...


And all it got was air hitting HD's here and moving down a bit and air hitting reservoirs now:

turn those fan speeds down to ~40% in order to really stress the AQ VRM wink.gif will probably still be fine though

I got a small 80 mm PWM fan to cool my AQ, but to be honest it seems pretty overkill with 3 YL 140 on Ch1, 6 of those on Ch3, and 1 intake fan on Ch2... It idles at 600 rpm and is set to keep to VRM temps below 60 (whereas the actual limit is 75...), so it basically only ever speeds up during summer. If I could reach it easily I'd unplug it to see what the temperatures would be without it running.

great job on those cables by the way thumb.gif

Convenient to plug and unplug , but there must be something that is more amicable.

Thoughts!!!
If you want to eliminate the middle connector you can run 2x12v & 2xgrounds in your 4 pin molex. Will mean extra wire, but it will get rid of the middle connector.
Or wire up so all your connectors are behind the side panel.

Yes same AQ5. But the PWM channel. Still don't understand why 1 blew and other 2 did not.

Thanks. Few pages back there is a shot with no intake fans from front with 12 rad fans. It was 34.

Going to use a 3 pin fan connector instead of the 4 pin molex.
If anyone knows where I can get a 2 pin fan connector (male/female) in the US...let me know. I have seen it on ModDIY...but that ships from HongKong.

Don't complain about your speeds rolleyes.gif haha, we pay like $150 for everything each month and we are *supposed* to be getting something way faster than what we're getting now.

Mine just sucks..lmao Fios isn't in my area yet. I have Timewarner cable & it great during the morning time. But when its like around 6 pm. Then its like around 5 or 6 MPS.. redface.gif

Frozen has them.

The male version of that is only for pcb/motherboard. Hmmm maybe i can just put the male version into the white acrylic of the vandal...and run 18 AWG to the other side of vandal bay and have another one there (and place the 18AWG in a groove on the acrylic. That will be so cool...but I dont have a router to do that.

The link above is for a fan connector, and would use the same pins as you use in 3pin fan connectors. If you need the male version also, you can use this:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9466/ele-563/FrozenCPU_ConnectRight_2-pin_Male_Power_Connector_-_Black.html?tl=g51c395

or use only 2 of the 3 pins of a hooded connector like this:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12272/ele-772/FrozenCPU_3-pin_Male_Shielded_Fan_Connector_-_Black.html?tl=g51c389s1348

Both of these are for fans.
