Thanks
Another question is if i connect 6 fans this way does the aquaero still have an issue with corsair sp120 fans?


In a word, Yes . . . . . .


Although according to Shoggy, a revision is planned that will lower the value of the protective input resistors in new Aquaeros.

While it won't solve the problem for really large numbers of Corsair fans, it should easily allow 6 or 8 fans to work acceptably.

The problem is, there's no way to know without looking at the PCB and knowing what to look for, will you know if it's a "new - revised" version or not.


Hopefully, he'll chime in here and update us regarding this.


Also, if all you have is 6 of them, you're in the "sorta" range of controllability.

You'll have some control of the speed, but you won't be able to slow them down as much as you could if you only had 2 or 3 of them.

You may or may not, depending on your needs, be able to live with that.

Is it just the Corsair fans or does this issue affect other brands PWM offerings (such as Noctua)?

Seems to be Corsair specific.

Have not seen anyone else complain of issues.

Corsair designed their fans to be rather proprietary to their Corsair Link system.

Phew - that's good to hear... I have a box-o-fans arriving next week along with an AQ6.

The boards that we currently use already have the necessary modifications. Please note that resellers might still have the older variant in stock.

Is there a way to check my aquaero if it uses this board?

Thanks for such a quick update . . . thumb.gifthumb.gif


Do the resellers like PPC's and FCPU know what to look for to be able to tell if it's the original 100 Ohm version PCB or the new one?

At least prospective buyers with Corsair fans already bought, could be sure to get the new one if they ask for it.

Look at the back of the PCB for the 4 surface mount resistors I have circled in red.

If they have "100" on them, it's the original version PCB.

Can you still get the boards for that?

Thanks Darlene for all the replies. Very informative. I'll check with my supplier and see which version he has for the Aquaero (I was thinking about putting all fans on the same channel though). As for the D5 circuit, I'll try to build in on a PCB and use it as an "in between" card with pin headers.
