post #291 of 10750

Lol, i put off ordering from Digikey for so long, that i just ordered spools of every pin i could think of. Even found extra pins and connectors for my Aquaero Flowmeter =)

 

I have some of the MMT Splitters too. My builds kind of spread around my entire apartment right now, so haven't planned that far ahead yet. I'll probly use some PCB splitters too. I already cut the rpm trace after the first header on my 4Way PWM PCB, just in case i decide to run my 35x3 off it

aquaero 0.02, anyone? rolleyes.gif



These are some pretty old prototype boards. The fourth board is an aquaero 3.0 board and was the base for the aquaero 3.07 which was the first aquaero that was available for sale. I still use this variant in my system for about 10 years now biggrin.gif

But it gets even better. Behold - the mystery board...



That was a planned extension board for the older aquaeros to add four more fan channels. Due to the high production costs it never saw the day of light as a regular product. Using a second aquaero like a LT version made more sense at this time.

There is a tiny slot directly above the terminal on the side of the connector with the tab that you need to poke a single-prong terminal tool (there's a cheap one that comes with the sunbeamtech kits that works pretty well for that purpose) or a thin paper clip or the like into to get the pin to release.

Googled up this image:

Male fan pin terminal removal

Edit:
Here's what I use to get at it:

male fan pin removal tool

^ I pretty much hate those kits otherwise. All of the other tools are junk imho. Much better off to spend the little bit of extra money to get better tools instead, but I gotta say that that single pin tool in that kit has come in handy to me quite a few times. Late Edit: I just remembered that I actually filed that single prong tool a little bit to make it fit better.

But like I said, you could use something like a paper clip or a really small eyeglasses flathead screwdriver instead. If you have a screwdriver small enough, it should be pretty much ideal.

Another tip:
You're very likely to need to use a hobby knife or the like to bend the tiny little tab on the pin back up just a bit after removal if you are wanting to reuse it. When removing them they like to get laid down flat so that the pin won't stay in very well if at all afterward if you don't.

Just get ATX tools and wait for them to break,the remaining pin is a good fan plug remover.

Never buy kits!!!! Lol

 

I bought the Lamptron Kit, not one of the attachment actually removes the pins it's meant to.

 

The Dual Head ATX Tool that FCPU sells works great for male fan pins

Hi Folks

just got my package from FCPU down here in Brazil and got some suprises...

1) the glass/lcd of my aquaero 6 came without protection and is really scratched... Is the lack of plastic film normal?
2) Just read it en passant here to find out my two d5 PWM by Swiftech are not controlled properly by the Aquaero 6 sad-smiley-002.gif ...I guess I should have done my homework better before ordering. The mod seems fine but it will be quite difficult to accomplish down here. No easy way to get those parts.
3) the steel faceplate is actually glued to the lcd board behind it and a pain in the neck to get it off and replaced it with the black.. Glued ? Really?

Right now I am a bit sad-smiley-002.gif and disappointed. Any help or suggestions you guys might have will be more than welcome.

I guess I should contact the Aquacomputer customer support about the scratch...

Here are some pictures of it:
