post #281 of 10874
so... I have an issue. I purchased the Akasa PWM splitter to power my pumps, but the MCP35x head doesn't match up with the PWM headers on the Akasa... They are 4 pin, but are slotted for 3 pin?

I was planning to just remove the yellow & black wires that lead from the molex to the headers, but now i'm not sure what to do. I was thinking I could just take the razor blade to the MCP header, but wanted to verify first.






I figured it would work since MCP35x is split. 4 pin for RPM signal & power from molex. The MCP35x does have two leads coming out of the header though. Blue and gray.

That's weird, the 5-way PWM Akasa splitter I have fits 4-pin PWM devices perfectly.
post #283 of 10874
The akasa splitter is standard. it is the female pump 4 pin pump connector that is non standard. Odd that the colors are reversed on the pump 4 pin as well. What you are planning to do should work fine. just shave off the piece over the green wire. Just remember to plug one of the pumps into the splitter lead that has the rpm wire. Notice the other two do not have it.

Edit- looked at swiftech's site and they have their own pwm splitter using the same plug configuration. From the picture of their splitter, not exactly sure what it does? just a jumper from one male to the other on the pwm pin with no signal traveling from one end of the cables to the other.

BTW- I use the 8 way swiftech splitter and the 5 way akasa splitters with my aquaero 6 and they work fine with akasa fans.

That particular cable is for a very specific job. Daisy chaining multiple PWM devices but maintaining the individual RPM signals on their own headers. So you can have two or more Pumps or fans using the one PWM signal but still having each device plugged in to a header to read its RPM.

There are just a couple of different types of PWM connectors. Some are like an extended 3 pin and some are like the one above. Its fine to either modify them or just swap the connector itself over for the other style.

I have the 5way Akasa Splitter. It takes the RPM from 1 fan and sends pwm to all 5, while powering from molex. 

 

Pin 3 is missing from 4 of the 5 male connectors. I just dbl checked mine

 

I know they have a sata powered splitter too, but i can't imagine it's any different

 

This is the one i have

Edit: Also for anybody ( @WiSK  ) wondering what happened to the ribbon cable mod i'm attempting, I just ordered 2 more of the female connectors from Digikey tonight (got one extra just in case). Should be here in a few days. I had some ideas about sticking pins through the insulation of the ribbon cable into the pin socket, but just seemed more trouble than it was worth.

 

New connectors should be here in 2-3 days. I'm gonna try it at like 10-15cm this time. Here's hoping it works. Took so long for me to order because i was trying to find a shielded cable that would work, but i guess that's one of those industry secrets :p

 

It's ironic that 3M has the exact shielded ribbon cable i need listed on their website as (Coming Soon). Oh well, hopefully a short run will work without the shielding

Made i simular cable "power cable"for my fans. The 40 fans get powered from both Aquearo's each aquero handles 1\2 of the fans.
Max power consumption 52 watt and iddle 37,2 watt..

Yeah i do all my own stuff now too. I ordered that like a year ago when i first started my build. 

 

I couldn't respect myself if i ordered one of those now, after the giant box of pins of connectors i have from Digikey. 

 

I ordered 100-500pks of male and female "Molex", ATX, Dupont, & Fan terminals in all wire guages available. (Molex and ATX offer 16AWG, 16-18AWG, & like 22-28AWG).

 

I have more pins and connectors than i know what to do with :wheee: 

 

I had to order from moddiy to get a bulk rate on the male dupont pins =\

At least you dont grab in a empty box. I have also plenty of al. Used colered wires for my last fans because the cable is sleeved and not in the way. I used 0,40mm colored cables "have to look up the AWG gauge.

Before i made my own cables i also buy the splitters.

Im still thinking of getting the AC D5 pump because of control and compatibility with the A6 even though I got a replacement of the Swiftech..
What are your thoughts on this ?

I hope she is okay too smile.gif

You wrote before that you have 0.5mm wire, which you translated to 24 AWG. That would be an unusual size to find in Europe. Are you sure it's not 0.5mm2 ?

Anyway, the Swiftech 655 pump is rated at 2 amps. So it doesn't matter: both 0.5mm diameter wire and 0.5mm2 cross-section wire can carry 2 amps just fine.


Been a bit preoccupied lately . . . . . biggrin.gif

There really are some other things in life that are as much fun as being a computer nerd.




As to your wire gage, It really depends on what the total load on the Aquaero is, since that wire has to carry it all.

For a pump and a few fans, if your total is around 4 amps or so, it'll get you by.

I'd really recommend that you either just order a premade extension, or make one with at least an 18 gage wire.
