Edit: And the aquabus d5 is *like* pwm but gets power from the usb connection of the Aquaero.

A d5 PWM would have to be connected to the fan header (configured to PWM) but that simply does not work in AQ6 unless you do a custom cable mod developed by IT Diva.

Thanks guys

So basically the best option is aquacomputer D5 pumps connected both through aquabus to the Aquaero6?

If I connect to the Mobo with USB can I manage them with A6 as well?

What is exactly the aquabus? Has A6got only one Aquabus?

I second that. Compared to IR functionality which I'm pretty sure would be a hard sell, the RGB LEDs for the Aquaero are a must-have. I had a plan to just splice in an extra one because I've seen another user post that they've done it successfully. Then I saw the size of the wires and gave up.

Shoggy--thanks again for the terminal replacement. It arrived today which is really fast considering how affordable the part&shipping was.
I think I'm going to wait on a tube reservoir until a bit more information arrives on the new design you have coming. thumb.gif


not really you can read up on it ( and see pics )

You would use one of these

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


to connect the two d5 usb to the Aquaero 6 Aquabus header. You can connect the two pumps via usb to the MB. It will not be connected to the AQ6 directly. But you would still be able to control it along with all the stuff in the AQ6 (fans and so on) using Aquasuite software. In fact you can have the pumps connected both USB and Aquabus at the same time since you will establish a priority on Aquasuite to whatever connection you want (eithe the USB or the Aquabus). Aq 6 have two Aquabus ports marked as low and high. Check pictures of it and you will see those.

"Not really"? It's not that I can't grasp the function or need pictures to explain it. It's that I don't watch tv (mindless garbage almost all of it, IMO) and don't have any need to control etc from my pc.

It would be awesome if you would just post the link for whoever is selling RGB splitters/add boards for the Aquaero though.
post #2265 of 11219
think about it,

if you have a HTPC, and your pc can control functions like power on ( tv/amp ) volume, change channels

well that would make your pc into ..... everything you would need

and as my link shows.... it already exists !

since you didnt read the link and / or my post, which you quoted and CLEARLY states "HTPC",
Quote:
Transmit/Receive infrared commands
You can control other devices in your house with the optional IR transmitter of the aquaero. The aquaero 5 can handle all important IR-protocols so you are able to manage your home theatre components. You won’t need the aquasuite software for this management. The aquaero is able to turn on/off your amplifier or you TV after the PC gets started. Furthermore through the aquasuite software the aquaero can analyze, learn and reproduce the signals of other IR-remotes.

with the lower one you can build youw own and be able to use the RGB from AQ if you make the correct one, or make one to power your LED strips ( RGB )

the upper one is built and shipped to you, that is the one i own( 4 of )

The Aquabus is just a 4pin connector, isn't it?!

Which is the difference between high and low aquabus connection? Can I connect a pump to High-connector and another pump to low-connector? or I need an Y-cable?

Anyway I didn't undestand well the "double" connection usb/aquabus:
1)I can use only usb, and control trough Aquasuite,
or
2)usb+Aquabus and I have to select a priority in Aquasuite but I don't understand which is the point of a double connection?
Or
3)Can I connect only Aquabus? Are pumps powered?

Small correction. The aquabus does not power the pump. It will get its power from the PSU. The aquabus is only used for the communication between the devices. Only small things like sensors can be powered through the aquabus.

The lowspeed aquabus can be only used for the tubemeter and the multiswitch. Both devices are pretty old and also not on sale anymore. It is not possible to use newer devices like the D5 pump on the lowspeed aquabus. Everything must be connected to the highspeed aquabus.

Using USB provides much more possibilities while using aquabus only allows to control the speed of the pump and to forward a temperature sensor if connected. If you connect both interfaces the priority is important because the aquaero (aquabus) could tell the pump to run with 80% and the software (USB) could tell it to run with 70%. So this creates a nice conflict and the priority tells the pump if it should follow the commands of the aquabus or USB.

As mentioned before. The aquabus alone does not power the pump. It must be connected to the PSU.

I want to buy one IR blaster Aquacomputer or 3rd party. In the meantime Im using a RC6 usb receiver (Windows media center Remote) that can connect 2 IR blasters, they work perfect with Linux (XBMC+LIRC) and Windows.

Hey guys, . . .

While the subject of the RGB output is at hand, . . does anyone know if there's any intensity/brightness control, or is it just an on-off control for each of the 3 color connections?

I'm thinking about maybe working on an amp board for my "Tropical Frost" chiller build, since it's in a Phantom 820 that has the integrated RGB lighting with the integrated NZXT hue, and I have extra RGB LED modules that I could add.



The internal D5s and the rad fans are PWM and controlled by the A6.

I'm using the same little mod on the Aquaero end of a dual 4 pin extension that I've shown here, and not a hint of a problem.

There's also a custom controller PCB that controls the D5 Strong pumps on the rear cold loop res/pump module and works with the Solid State Relay module to control the chillers, which gets it's control input from the A6
