power up both fan controllers with a 2ndary molex cable so the CPU does not deep fry while working with the AquaComputer AquaSuite software finding a solution to the Aquaero 6 zero voltage output issue.
return the Aquaero 6 and forget AquaComputers as a viable micromarket supplier

Bruce, you need to chill out a bit. The Aquaero's so popular because Aquacomputer is an EXTREMELY reputable company. They're products are top quality, so i wouldn't go to that extreme. The Aquaero isn't meant to be a simple unit. It's the opposite.
If you're doing it right, it should take you at least a few days to get everything setup how you want it. Then you'll never have to touch it again if you don't want.
Take some time and troubleshoot your issue. You'll figure it out. Just remember that Aquasuite is the brain of the aquaero.
Also, if you're running those San Ace PWM fans you posted a cpl months or weeks ago, that could be the issue.
If they're PWM, you need to make sure the fans are being powered from your PSU with the RPM & PWM (3rd & 4th) wires connected to the fan header. Then you need to specify in Aquasuite to use PWM control for that channel(s).
If you're Voltage Controlling San Ace's, you need to break out a calculator and figure out how many amps you're trying to pull off each channel. Each header can handle 2.5A MAX.

4 check firmware for updates
Once this works out do some lighting as the Bitfenix Alchemy LED Strips are 12 volt can some one confirm this could connect to a fan pin out on the Aquareo 6 XT was thinking of running two 30cm and also have a Bitspower dual 30cm cold cathode but thought Id run this with a relay and use one of the Aquareo 6 fan pins out to switch it on and run 12 volt from the PSU to the cathode unit from the PSU
I think this should work ok
Keep in mind, the Aquaero has the 4Pin RGB Header, 3Pin/3Pol Relay, and 2x2Pin PWM LED Headers. You really shouldn't have to sacrifice a fan header to LED's. I'm fairly certain the Phobya Flex-Light strips work directly off the RGB Header. You should always keep an eye on the amps your planning on using, but you should be able to handle all of it without using fan headers. I'd recommend the Phobya LED's tho just because i've seen it talked about with the Aquaero 5 in the past

The Aquaero 6 has the option of PWM OR Voltage Control. You just have to tell it which to use. The Aquaero's just a computer. It can't do what you don't tell it to. You'll be fine with your GT's.

San Ace's are ANYTHING BUT STANDARD. Tell me which model they are.
Bruce, you need to keep in mind, all those things you're listing as negatives are the reason that people buy the Aquaero.
