Everything will be controlled by the Aquaero 6. You just need to connect the pump via USB first so the Aquaero correctly recognizes you have 2 pumps connected to it.

I have a question about 3-pin vs 4-pin fans and the AQ6.

I know that the AQ6 can control both, but I am unable to find out the power details about the Cougar 3-pin fans (ie how many watts per fan they need) so I can see if the AQ6 has enough "umph" to drive them all. I've sent an email to Cougar tech support, but haven't gotten a response in over 2 weeks.

I was thinking about putting 8 of these on one channel: COUGAR CF-V12H Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan
8 more of the same on another channel.
Finally 3 of these on the third channel: COUGAR CF-V14H Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan


I'm just wondering if I should just sell the 3-pin fans and go with about $290 worth of PWM 4-pin fans instead (8 per channel), using these fans: COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation


I'd rather not spend the money, but are PWM fans really "all that" when using an AQ6, assuming that there is enough power to run 8 of the 3-pin fans per channel?

I see where the AQ6 can control 30 watts per channel. At 12 Volts, that is a total of 2.5 Amps. I doubt that each of the 8 fans would pull 0.3125 Amps, but I'm not sure. I know the start up current on Gentle Typhoon AP-15's is 0.36A (but the operating current is 0.083A), so maybe it will be close.

Thoughts?


Never mind, apparently I rattled the right cage. I just got a call back and was told from Cougar that the start up current on the CF-V12H is 0.2 Amps, which means that each fan will draw 2.4 Watts per fan ... so 8 of them will only be 19.2 Watts ... well below the AQ6's 30 Watt maximum.

you can control the pumps either way!

Yes the Aquasuite will see them as MIPS devices and you can connect 4 of these to the Aquaero using the Aquabus

you would connect all of them to the Aquabus.. Yes you need to update the firmware using the usb connection on the D5's before you connect them to the Aquaero. The Aquabus flow sensor would also be connected to the aquabus not the 1st PMW connection...

I am not 100% sure you are right here all I did was update the firmware using the USB on each pump and then connect them to the Aquaero aquabus with the USB disconnected. I did not configure anything on the pumps in the Aquasuite. it see's these pumps as MIPS devices!!!

Don't you have to change the number if using more than 1? I know that's what the manual said if using more than one poweradjust, you have to hook them up via usb and change the number. Don't know if that applies also to MPS devices though.

this is what it says about the D5 pumps from the manual.

15.2. D5 pumps connected via aquabus
For D5 pumps connected to the aquaero by aquabus connection, a name
can be set and the output range can be limited in both directions (“Minimum
power”/”Maximum power”). D5 pumps connected via aquabus can not be
switched off, a pump “power” of 0 % corresponds to the minimum speed setting
of the pump.
Please note: D5 pumps connected to a fan output will be controlled as a
“fan” and can be switched off by the aquaero.

where did you see this about the power adjust?? I have not been able to find it??

"11.5. aquabus configuration
Before connecting poweradjust 2 devices to an aquaero 5 controller, each poweradjust
2 device has to be configured to an individual aquabus address. You may
skip this step if only one poweradjust 2 device is connected to an aquaero 5. Addresses
50 through 57 are available for poweradjust 2 devices."

From the poweradjust manual. It say to configure to an aquabus address. So I thought that applied to all aquabus devices.

As I said the flow port on the Aquero is for a different device.

http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2294

The MPS devices use 4 pin Aquabus and you connect them to the Aquabus high port on the Aquaero

http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2846

http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2847

You have 3 MPS devices ( the USB pumps are MPS as well) so you can connect them all via USB or after they are set up you can connect them all via 4 pin aquabus cable to the aquabus high port on the aquaero. To do that you need two of the Aquabus 4 pin splitter cables. Each MPS device needs to be connected via USB first and given an individual aquabus address, your two USB pumps will have the same address by default so one will need to be changed.



This is one of my D5 USB and you can see its aquabus address is the default 12 ... you have 2 of them and they will be both set to 12 ... one needs to be changed to 13


The Recon is only PWM capable on the fan header number 4, if you connect your fans to it it will work but not on the other three. It also needs to be configured to PWM control in the aquero's aquasuite tab under fans / fan four advanced settings.

thank you so much for this and I stand corrected I had missed this somehow. I am sure glad to know I have not set everything up exactly just 1 or 2 items at a time so I was unaware of this. I do not think you have to do this with the MIPS devices though. thank you again..

Very nice. I've been waiting for Frozen or PPCs to get the heat sink @ US (Aquacomputer wants 33 euros and 14 days for shipping and it's "kind" of excessive IMHO - Aquatuning sends stuff to the US for 15 euros in 3 days)
  
  
post #1460 of 1963

Yeah i'm waiting for either FCPU or PPC or even Aquatuning for the Heatsink and 290x Active Backplate right now as well. My cart on Aquacomputer was like 60 euros to get shipped UPS and like 35 euros for 14 day DHL delivery. 

 

I figure in 14 days hopefully they'll both be available for retail anyway =P
