Is the XSPC PWM D5 pump the same as Swiftech's?

I just pretty much always test stuff progressively as I work on it.

Once in a while, I make a petit faux pas and forget to change something I was intending to and power up prematurely, hence I offer the general caution.


You mod looks fine, it should be good to go . . . . . Testing would have given you a little look at how a Zener diode regulates voltage.

The mod shouldn't get hot enough to preclude heatshrinking the area.

Don't get all carried away and do like 3 layers or anything, but one is a very good idea.


Expect some good reports here anytime now . . .

i am still not concinced that a pwm d5 will perform wny better than the d5 vario + molex+signal to 3pin adapter ofcourse a pwm controlled d5 will offer more power efficient opationand perform differently but i am still not convinced that it is worth the hassle with the aq6

Great !!! The pump is controllable now wheee.gif Thanks a LOT thumb.gif

But why isn't there an indication of the RPM in aquasuite ?

Check the terminal on the wire contact, it should readout just fine.

Did the terminal push out a little when you plugged in, maybe the lock tab needs to be tweaked back so it latches.

everything looks intact on the plug

current at 0 ? and voltage stays on 12,1 when i adjust the speed

You might try swapping it with the fan you're not using, #4.

Set that port to PWM like #3, and then set #3 as a voltage control port like 1 and 2, and see if the rpm reads from a fan at #3.

That will help determine if the A6 is OK all around and maybe it's a bad tach wire on the pump.

I assume this is all set up in your PC and all running on the same PSU.


D.


Current at zero because the mod draws too little current, a few milliamps or so, to count for anything, and the pump gets its power from the PSU, where a voltage controlled fan would get its power from the A6 pins that the Zener and 560 resistor connect to so it could be measured.

In PWM mode, the output stays fixed at 12V.

Do you have an old CPU heatsink fan to use as a tester, like a stock Intel cooler fan?

tried port 4 and its still the same... and everything runs from my PSU in the case

yes i have an x79 stock cooler

Did a fan on #3, set to power control like 1 and 2 , read out rpm OK

What fan comes with a socket 2011 CPU.


I'm thinking of the stock Intel cooler/fan that comes boxed with a 1155/1150 CPU.

They are PWM and make handy testers.

Yes I swapped between port 2 and 3.. pump is still not showing any RPM

Ill try out that stock intel fan and see what it says..

its this one
