To simulate a hi current load that needs to connect to ground with very low drop, (since I don't have 50 Corsair fans) I used an automotive brake/tail light bulb from the 12V line, and let the PWM pin sink the current to ground.

The bulb goes nicely from out, to full brightness, as the slider in Aquasuite is adjusted up and down.

All 4 channels work nicely with moderate loads, (ran 4 35X's from each of the channels without a hitch) but the 2 with the Darlington transistors can sink massive amounts of current, ( a couple amps) with no drop as the load goes up.

Holy Allen Wrench Batman, these things are Huuuuge! biggrin.gif

Well I finally have a decent set of metric hexagonal wrenches, needed the 2.0mm and the 2.5mm for the Aquaero 6, no idea what I’ll ever use the 10mm big boy for, a red Italian motorcycle maybe? smile.gif

So today I can finally install the gorgeous red Aquacomputer A6 heatsink, thank you Shoggdogg for thinking of RED as your primary color, kpoeticg and I both lucked out.

Posting these pics for Mr. Seross69 and anyone else that loves high quality tools for your PC workshop. Was going to buy just a standard $15 Black and Decker or Stanley set, but I’ve had such amazing results with my two Wera bit drivers thought I might as well spend another $15 and get something that will last a life-time, makes sense in a cost-over-time equation, and these wrenches also allow complete and absolute justification for buying that red Italian motorcycle. biggrin.gif

Putting this up for kpoeticg:

I know you once said the Sanyo San Ace Silent-S fans can be as much as $50each depending on how and where you buy them, and you are correct, they can get expensive and they arrive unsleeved so factor in that cost also.

I just found them ON SALE for only $17.02 each.

Since I’m moving from an H100i and building a custom AIO with a new XSPC RX360 V3 radiator and will need one more Sanyo Denki Silent S-Type fan, AND they are on sale right now, I went ahead and ordered two more. This time Newark Element 14 offers Standard Shipping for $8.69, they did not offer that option just one year ago and the fans were only $17.02 each, so I got two on the way for only $44.77. Awesome. smile.gif

If you do your own sleeving, then the cost is only $22 each. Get ‘em while they’re on sale, they only have 22 left in stock, well umm only 20 now, after my purchase.

I'm trying to figure out the best/easiest way to hook all three of my DDC's up to one head on the AQ6... I was thinking to either just bridge the wires together to my already existing Y splitter, or using one of the ModMyToys 4-Pin PWM Power Distribution PCB's... That would require cutting some pins though, correct?

I may have found an alarm action bug in the Aquaero when using the relay. Assuming the relay is "ON" when the alarm condition is triggered, the action "Relay: Switch for 2 s" only switches the relay off but not back on again. The same problem occurs if the alarm action is "Relay: Switch for 10 s".

My Aquaero 6 Pro relay has the ATX Break adapter wired to pins 2+3. The Aquaero is connected to the motherboard via powered USB cable (always on). I'm using the latest firmware (1036) and I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro.

Steps to reproduce bug:

1) Computer is powered off and relay is "OFF".
2) Switch relay to "ON" using Aquaero front panel. This powers on the computer.
3) Switch relay to "Controlled by event system".
4) Create an alarm condition that is easy to trigger. I made a trigger based on flow.
5) Set alarm action to "Relay: Switch for 2 s".
6) Once inside Windows, trigger the alarm condition and pay attention to the Aquaero "Relay & power outputs" information page. You will see the alarm text flash briefly and the relay will switch to "OFF".
7) Relay does not switch back to "ON" after two seconds <--- BUG
8) The computer powers off. Relay is still "OFF".

Attempted workaround:
I tried setting the relay to "ON" and then flashed firmware 1036 again to see if it somehow changed the default relay setting to "ON". It did not. The relay switched back to "OFF".

I've sent a PM to Shoggy, but I figured that in case of any errors on my part you might be able to point me in the right direction smile.gif

I think I saw it mentioned that the 6xt was up as orderable at FrozenCPU, but I just noticed they're actually in stock now (30 something available) so if anybody still needs one go get it while you can!
I had saved my 10 percent off coupon from the review and got one (along with a crap ton of other stuff, I really got the most I could out of that coupon!) when they showed up as orderable a little bit ago, so mine should be on its way & I can't wait! I have a package coming tomorrow from them but I am not sure if it the aquaero or just the pressure membranes they had missed on the order...I am so much hoping it's the aquaero!

Sorry for the rambling, just getting excited like a kid at Christmas!

post #1858 of 1963
I thought I had purchased everything I needed to get my Aquaero 6 Pro working but I think I overlooked a crucial part.

Here is my list:

1. Aquaero 6 Pro
2. Aqua Computer D5
3. Aqua Computer Flow Sensor 'High Flow' G1/4 for Aquaero 4/5/6
4. Aqua Computer Flow Meter Cable 3-pin

Here is what confuses me.

It doesn't appear that anything came with the 4 pin aquabus cable needed to connect the pump to the Aquaero 6 which I believe I need to control the pump speed.

I see one for the USB connection but I'm assuming that gets connected to the computer so that it can work with the software.

There is an RPM signal cable but it's only a 3 pin and very short so I'm not sure what that is for either.

1. Do I need to purchase a 4 pin aquabus cable
2. Since the flow sensor and the D5 pump can only be connected to the "high" aquabus port and there is only one how does that work?
3. Do I connect the D5 pump to the "high" and then connect the flow sensor to the "flow"?

Hoping you all can help me since the instructions didn't really help.

You only need a 3 pin aquabus cable for the D5 as it does not need the voltage from the AQ, You will connect both the D5 and the flow sensor to the high speed bus just use or make a Y connector!

hope this helps
post #1860 of 1963
That helps a little but still see a potential problem.

The 3 pin aquabus cable for the D5 is (black/red/yellow) and the cable for the flow sensor is (green/yellow/orange).

Are there diagrams anywhere showing what color cable is for what?
