Would the air in and the air out really differ that much? I would think unless you've got an issue, the case temp should be the same as the ambient temp outside the case. I would think if you are going to place a temp sensor on the input and output of the air flow, somewhere in the air flow, mid point in the fans, somewhere not to get sucked into a fan but not to stick out like a sore thumb also.

Personally, I have two inline temp sensors after cpu radiator and after gpu radiator, (I think the cpu tends to be a little higher but they're close to the same). I usually see the water sit around the outside ambient when at idle and water kicks up to about 24 c under load, very quiet running machine which was my goal.

I've got temp sensors for in the case but have yet to get off my can and add them but I've got to do some wiring cleanup also, so maybe when I do that, I'll add the sensors.

For a new AQ6, at what point would using the water block be advised?

I am intending to use the AQ6 in a fairly simple WC build consisting of two 360s push/pull, one 120mm exhaust fan, one D5 Vario and one BP water temp sensor. I have not settled on whether my fans should be PWM or non-PWM yet.

Do you reckon I should just use the heatsink or go the whole hog and WC it too?

The water block is only "required" when pushing like 40+ fans.

Now I am curious. What are peoples temps on their aquaero 6s. Im running 12 fans and mine is in the 30's

I didn't add that to the display pages but I might do that, curious what acceptable temps are without heat sinks or water cooling.

likewise. I'm running NF-F12's and they don't pull as much as a lot of other fans but I am still curious what other temps others are getting.

30s is good, do you mean CPU temps?

Only 5 fans here, at 600 to 800rpm, two on H100i at 700rpm core temps 28C to 32C lowest to highest core, 4.5Ghz. I have 4 NF-F12s, the Sanyo fans give about a 2C to 4C drop over the Noctuas same rpm, depending on OC.

and they are only $17.99 about the same as NF-F12s currently.

Oh, you meant Aquaero heatsink temps, sorry bout that, my heatsink actually feels cold to the touch directly over the VRMs if that helps. smile.gif

edit: just checked in AquaSuite Aquaero CPU temp 29.67C, I placed some of the thermal pad that came with the red heatsink over the A6 CPU even though the instructions did not say to, there was so much extra TIM, I just went ahead and covered everything. tongue.gif

I guess my A6 CPU temp will go up when I add an AquaComputer D5 Aquabus pump next week, only Shoggy would know the answer to that.

Yeah, 30 for the aquaero. Thats with no add on heatsink
post #350 of 10730
Its not the CPU temps that climb with load it is the Fan Amplifiers. The Amps on a AQ6 will not even get warm unless there is very high load placed on them. The Heatsink won't do much because it is not finned, it is really more like just an adaptor for the water block.

The Aq5 needed a heatsink because the amps rise in temp with even a relatively mild load and undervolting. My amps are at 50C now running 11 fans at 7V. When the Amps hit like 90 degrees or so the Aq5 will ramp up volts to 12V til amp temps drop again. With too high a load and not enough cooling the fans will continually rise and fall in speed as the Aquaero struggles to cope.

The power handling on the Aq6 is completely different and does not cause the same heating except at very high load levels. An Aquabus D5 will not cause any heating at all unless for some reason you are pointlessly running its power through the Aquaero.
