It connects to the interface by USB. Show me a link please. The description says it compatible with the aqua bus interfaces. It says nothing about motherboards

We have developed a new controller board for the D5 pump which also fits directly in its housing. The controller features connectors for USB, aquabus, a temperature sensor and an output for a tacho signal which can be configured, for example it can be turned off when an alarm is active.

The rpm value of the pump is forwarded by USB or aquabus. You can connect up to four of these pumps via aquabus to the aquaero. There is no limit when you use them via USB.

The best part: you can adjust the speed of the pump through the aquasuite 2012 software or the aquaero 5. The controller uses the speed regulation of the pump which is already there so it does not generate any further heat because of an voltage regulator like it would be the case with a poweradjust 2 controller for example.

When you have done all settings you can also unplug it from the USB or aquabus. The controller has its own processor and does not require a permanent connection to the PC or aquaero 5.

Clearly states that you can connect them over USB to a motherboard and configure the pump using aquasuite.

Thread Starter 

Thank you for all of the responses.

 

The rad that I have planned to use is a 240 rad. The plan is to do a push/pull fan config on the rad.

 

Right now I do not have the funds or the video card to water cool that. My next plan is to get a new GPU. Once I add my GPU into the loop I do plan on adding another 240 rad and a 120 rad.

 

I am using the Cooler Master Elite 371 (link) case for this build. Once I put my GPU under water I do plan on buying a new case. Possibly a CaseLabs.

 

The reason I picked the Aquacomputer pump, adapter, and reservoir is because I have heard great things and also I like the look of the pump and res combo. I am open to other pump and res combos if anyone else has another to look at.

 

Once again I appreciate all the feedback. Once I get the loop all planned out I will be starting up my first build log.

You could look at the D5 PWM from Swiftech. I believe it's not more expensive in the states and actually is better than the AquaComputer D5.
I believe martin has compared the swiftech PWM version to a normal D5 vario (which the AquaComputer D5 is). It resonates less at certain frequencies and goes down to a lower rpm.

See now that the Swiftech PWM actually is 40 dollars cheaper. In Europe the AquaComputer D5 is actually cheaper but apparently shipping and import costs are way out of proportion.

I can strong heartedly recommend the Swiftech D5, it can be connected to any PWM header, so you can simply control it with the CPU-header on your motherboard.

This was originally my first choice for a pump. What would I need to attach a res directly to the pump?

 

I really love the size and look of the Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 80 Inline Reservoir (link)

You can still use that Swiftech D5 with the Aqualis top/res you have mentioned in your first post, any D5 fits in any D5 housing.

awesome, thank you. last i read or remembered, it only worked with the aquabus. thats great.
thank you more than very much.

A think a PWM D5 with some PWM fans is a great automated cooling setup. You're paying a premium for the usb interface when all you're going to do is ramp it up and down according to the temp, which PWM already does. Water cooling is expensive already, spend money on better things like a better rads and better fans.
