Hey Bruce when you wired up the fans you only need one fan to read the RPM signal is your fan wire connections ok what I mean is a fan splitter lead should have only one fan conected to the RPM signal perhaps your leads might have more than one fan lead connected to the signal wire oneeyedsmiley02.png I checked mine last night to make sure a two into one fan lead should have only one speed signal wire connected other wise I think the fans will run full speed worth checking

results.

Plan B

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.

Plan C

return the Aquaero 6 and forget AquaComputers as a viable micromarket supplier



You have me worried I may experience the same issues with my non-PWM Typhoons.

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.

1 Disconnect the power and mobo USB from the Aquareo unit
2 Power up the PC and down load aqua suit install aqua suit and do a basic config
3 Power off plug Aquareo back in and power up and re config
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 rolleyes.gif

 

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.

WTH?

 

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.

The Sanyos are only 130milliamps each so I'm not maxing out any one 30watt channel.

I just cannot believe the AC set-up guide, it's not a set-up at all is a descriptive and that's all. It describes what each function of the A6 is capable of, ok fine good, now how do I set it up software first? front panel first? regional thermal profiles first? WHAT?

The only way I'm able to post right now is a back up fan controller. AAAHHH ok breathe deep slowly slowly open mind embrace the future. biggrin.gif

You'd use the Aquaero as the remote instead of the RGB Controller. So you'd just buy the RGB strip and not the controller. I'll try to find where i read about that b4 you pull the trigger on the order :thumb:

The Aquaero instructions just tell you how to set it up in your rig and what to plug in where basically. You need to read the Aquasuite manual. THIS guide might help you out.

Also, what model San Ace's are they? 130mA seems light for San Ace (I could be wrong about that, i'm just going off memory)

The problem could also be the startup voltage for your fans. That also needs to be setup in Aquasuite. Different fans have different minimum voltages they can run at

It's not that hard. Just go to fans> Control by RPM> and turn them down.
post #1139 of 1963
ok....this is going to sound very noob-like but here it goes....

How does the Aquaero get mounted in the HAF XB? I put it in one of the bays, close the lock at the side, and nothing.....the aquaero isn't locked in

Yeah that's a common issue with the XB. IF you line it up right, the locking pin will go into one side of the bay mount, but the other side has no support. You need to either use something like Velcro, Mounting Tape (best is Scotch 3M 4010), or screw it in. Only on the inner side of the drive cage. The side with the lever will lock with the pins
