Here is the information Cpachris sent me. I found it incredibly useful, and just wanted to post it here in case anyone missed it. Saved me a lot of time fooling around trying to understand everything. ++++rep

For the 2 power adjusts (i'll call them PA2's) going forward, you need to have a power connection and an aquabus connection.

For the aquabus connection, it is easiest to daisy chain them together...because each PA2 has two separate aquabus connections. The aquabus is nothing more than a 3 pin fan connection. You can use 26 or 22 awg wire. You will have one aquabus cable that runs from the AQ5 LT, to the first PA2. Then a second aquabus cable that runs from the first PA2 to the second PA2. Let me know if that makes sense.

For the power connections...each PA2 needs to have a molex plugged in. If you are just using a molex cable that came with your PSU...you can just plug them in and go. If you are making your own cables...you only need the 12 volt and the ground. The 5 volt is not used in the PA2. Doesn't hurt to have it...but it is unused.

For the power connection to your AQ5 LT...you need to run a molex connection to it. If you are just using a molex cable that came with your PSU....you can just plug it in and go. If you are making your own...you need all 4 wires on this one. The AQ5 LT DOES use the 5 volt.

You will also need to plug the AQ5 LT into a USB connection on your motherboard.
Quote:
You also asked about whether the pump molex should plug into the PA2 or the AQ5. You want to plug both pumps into your PA2's for their power. Since your pumps have a molex connection...you have to convert it to a 3pin fan connection in order to power it through the PA2 (or the AQ5 for that matter). Not sure if you bought them...but Aquacomputer sells adapters for this purpose. I just made my own.
Quote:
You asked "When you covert a molex to a 3pin fan, you will just have ground and 12V, so only 2 pins, this is correct?". It depends on whether your fan has the 3rd wire attached. The D5 vario speed pumps don't have it when they come from the factory...but a lot of resellers go ahead and add one to differentiate. I got mine from Sidewinder Computers...and for $4 bucks (yep...just $4 bucks) they will solder the rpm wire on. If you have an rpm wire from the pump...use it in the 3pin connection. If you don't have an rpm wire from the pump...then you will only have 2 wires going into your 3pin.

If you are looking at the end of the 3pin that you plug the wires into, and the connection grooves are on the bottom...then from left to right it goes like this:

black wire from pump
red wire from pump
rpm wire from pump.

Here is a post that has some good pictures and discussion of what I did for the fan harnesses:

Thanks to Cpachris for all this info. Also, the link to his build log is above. If you haven't seen it (which is improbable since it is an epic build), go check it out.

Hope I never have to go Aquaero tongue.gif

I have a question for you, bn - I have the Mips cpu block for an Intel 1155 chip/mobo. I think I get the assembly, but would luv to hear from you that I have it right. The paper diagram is a little vague on separation of parts above and below the mobo, imo.

It looks like the red 3/4 washers go above the mobo - goofy little things. That's the only question I have.

The rest of the install appears to be normal, bracket and nuts below, block etc above. But if you have any tips, please share ! There's very little info to be found on the net; looks like this block is a bit of a rarity, altho cpachris has a copper version.

ADD: ok, i have a 2nd ask. The pad that sits between the bracket and the socket base ? I take it that the orange side faces up .... ?

I don't have this block, and I'm such a noob, I dare not answer. What you said in your first assumption looks correct from what I know, but I can't say for sure. I'm sure cpachris would have the lowdown on this info. You should have seen the instructions for the chipset block lol. I just threw them away immediately, was a complete joke.
post #225 of 286
oh hell, I thot you had the mips cpu block somehow. well, thanks ! if those instructs were anything like the drawing I have, i would have tossed them too !

hmm, I don't think cpachris has actually put his block together yet, he's still on air I believe.

Yes, I'm just going to go ahead and bookmark this specific post for future reference smile.gif Thanks to both of you! thumb.gif

yah, that's what I thought .. and I started peeling the orange side off, not sticky !! I'm guessing it faces the socket base. I think I'll start a standalone thread asking for sure.

Yeah it was all confusing to me at first, for sure. Once you figure it all out it doesn't seem like a big deal, but the initial learning curve is steep.
The rpm header on the LT/PA2 you can use to run a 3 pin fan wire to your cpu fan socket on the motherboard, it will output a constant rpm signal so you can configure the bios on the mobo to take appropriate action if the signal isn't present. Some boards can use the lack of a cpu fan signal to shut down the pc if configured correctly.
The Aquaero and PA2's are some really nice tech. The PA2's will actually function independently or will fold right into the Aquasuite software as extra fan, temp sensor, and flow sensor channels when an Aquaero is present.

Very nice info here. Thanks for sharing this!


Well guys, I truly found out the purpose of a leak test last night. Since my first loop (posted a few pages back) was such crap (and it never leaked), and my new loop is so clean, I was a bit overconfident that I wouldn't see any leaks. Well, I was right in a way, but ultimately wrong.

The connection leaked at the rotary seal (meaning there was nothing I could have done to prevent the leak, since there is nothing to screw in-unless I would have individually tested it outside of the loop first). So it was a failed/faulty fitting.

I got very very lucky that I didn't drown my PSU, as I was finished filling the loop and about to walk away for a bit when I noticed that the bottom of my case was flooding.

Thankfully I had paper towels covering the bottom of the case as well. I didn't do this on the first loop, but something made me do it on the 2nd loop, I have no idea why...



Thankfully I had another one of the same fittings. 3 hours of run time, and no leaks. I am very confident with the connections that I made, but I will be keeping an eye on all rotary seals and O-rings...

This thing was leaking heavily though, which is good in some respects, since it happened sooner than later.

The next update will provide some valuable lessons as well smile.gif Enjoy...

PS- also contacted performance-pc, they are letting me return this fitting and all the other unused fittings that I don't want/need, so that is nice. The leak wasn't anyone's fault but bitspower. But this is the first fitting that I have seen or heard that leaked from Bitspower, so I just got unlucky I guess. I will admit that I like the koolance fitting design better than Bitspower, but they don't offer the crystal link setup.
