The farbwerk is designed to control LEDs with a voltage between 0 and 24 V. When installed to a PC system, the power supply will be 12 V so the LEDs or strips must be designed to use this voltage. Outside the PC and with an appropriate power supply unit, it is also possible to use 24 V LEDs. The farbwerk provides up to 2.5A per single channel/color while the total load can be as much as 8 A (100 W at 12 V).

Just to double check; On AQ5 LT's 4th channel I'll have 8 EK Vardar 1850 fans @ 1.44 watt each. (11.52 watt in total). 1.44 watt/12 volt = 0.12 ampere per fan for 0.96A in total. Which is all below the given 1.65A/19.8W.

Any oversight, beyond not knowing the startup current required?

no, it looks good to me. Do you have the heatsink on it? I was used to use the aq 6 and when I start using the AQ5 I was surprised by how warm/hot it would get...

Should be fine. It is really undervolting on the first three channels that causes most of the heat. The PWM channel is always 12V so doesn't have the same problem.
Of course you could use a PWM power splitter cable so that power is coming straight from the PSU and in theory at least run as many fans as you wanted on the PWM channel.

Startup current doesn't matter. It is already allowed for as it is in any high quality controller.

There will be fans on the first two channels but I'm not concerned about the heat. Although I'm not opposed to including the waterblock if needed. Unless I could run 16 of said PWM fans on the one channel but i'm not keen on finding out that I'm wrong and having spent money on it wink.gif

even the passive one makes a good difference:

and with something like the PWM swiftech splitter you can daisy chan a lot of fans there since the power will not be provided by the aquaero but instead by the molex/sata power connector. This is what Jakusonfire was suggesting.

cheers

Too much heat and the fans will constantly speed up to full speed and back again as the controller tries to cool itself down. Although each channel is rated for 1.65A, which is OK at 12V but at lower voltages it is far less. For 16 fans you should at least have the airsink fitted. The water block isn't really needed until running quite a few high power fans.

less than 16 high draw fans like NB Eloop B12-4 will have the controller overheating.

Yeah, I've got one of them already and may use it for the build (And/or make my own wiring harness, I'll see). My concern with using more than 8 or so PWM fans on there is the PWM signal strength. I suspect, from what seems general consensus, that around 8 fans is the maximum and still fully control the fans. The alternatives are to either A) use the other channel(s) with 3 pin fans or B) use the MB's PWM connections.

The former solution I can make work in fashion (Performance, looks, sound, etc) the latter defeats the purpose of using the AQ5.

I wouldn't mind either solution when/if needed, heatsink or waterblock would do. But as described above, it's the PWM signal that worries me. I've been reading this thread , although I suspect its outside my scope of knowledge wink.gif

But knowing that the 8 fans should work and the startup current accounted for is good.

Hey guys, i know aquaero 5 is hot, much hotter than aq6. I've just made update to aquasuite 2015 and after I'm really worried about my panels temperatures. Now its look like this




And before update my temps was much lower



Friend of mine has even worst situation, because his panel is hitting 100 degrees and He is using waterblock , I have stock radiator from 5 Pro. Anyone else have a similiar situation after update or maybe there is somehow solution to lower this temps ?
post #3070 of 10737
have you IR probed it to verify these temps? Or even put your hand over it to feel it radiating that kind of heat?
