I really want that 5/6 XT, everywhere I look the front plate is silver not black, am I missing something or have I been too lazy looking around online perhaps?

Probably lazy, will dig deeper. tongue.gif

Cool thread by the way, impressive toy/tool

Is THIS what you are looking for? It is an add-on/upgrade.

3. Should I run the pump on a separate profile, and what is a good startup boost setting for it?

I am jjust seeking the quietest basic running state without fans ramping up and down.

I get the feeling my pump and or fans have some kind of min voltage action going on.I just set min temps and power down pretty low all around and fans and pump shut themselves completely off, then suddenly ramp up now and again. Not ideal, to say the least. Can't quite figure out what is going on with this all.

Thanks for any help and insight into how all this stuff clicks. All new to me.

1. For your minimum, select something below your loop-ambient delta at startup. For example, if your l-a delta is 3C, choose 1.5C. For your maximum, choose the a-l at which you want all your fans going full blast, something you would only reach after benchmarking for a while or gaming hard for, say, 30 minutes. Maybe something between 8.5C and 10C? It really depends on your loop. BTW, you want to have an "ambient" temperature sensor measuring air before your system warms it up, and at least one measuring coolant temperature, then create a virtual sensor with the delta between those two. That is the ideal sensor to drive your curve controllers

2. For the minimum and maximum voltage or power settings for your fans, look at the technical information supplied by your manufacturers. That information is usually right on the box (in some cases even on the label), and you can also probably find it online

3. I generally don't see the value of putting your pump on a curve, I would advise you to set it at a value where you have enough flow with tolerable noise, and just leave it there. That setting would be the same in all your profiles, if you end up having more than one.

Quoting above. Thanks. I actually wiped out all those questions, and rewrote it. Don't know how you managed to quote the old stuff. ??
I did finally figure out how to choose the data to use. Not very intuitive to me. Had to right click one of those software thingies.

I got it going, now, as I edited my quote to say earlier, am trying to figure good numbers to use on the curve. See above, if interested. wink.gif

OK, here is my dumb question of the day... referencing the advanced, highly technical drawing below,

Is having part of the return line above the reservoir level an issue?
And, if the first part is not an issue, would the level sensor MPS 40 read the water column in the reservoir or the highest point in the loop?
post #5716 of 11086
if I change global settings to Fahrenheit, Aquasuite puts the decimal point in the wrong place so my delta temps ( water temp minus ambient air) is screwed up
for example if the water temp is 73.5 and ambient air is 71.6 the virtual temp sensor shows 19 instead of 1.9.
It is incorrect for all the virtual sensors but the actual sensors show correctly. It just cannot do the subtraction correctly

Maybe tomorrow when I upgrade to 2015-9 that will work

Don't bring this up in the aquacomputer forum smile.gif

Only work-around appears to be to switch to Centigrade. Though Kelvin may work, didn't try it.

There is a myriad ways to set up curve controllers but I'll lay out what I find easiest.

First you need to create a sensor that you want to use to base the controller from. A coolant temp, delta temp, etc

Then you want to set the min and max speeds on the fans you will assign to that controller. Adjust the fans to a quiet speed and set that as min, then adjust them to as loud as you want them and set that as max.

With the pc idling and fans at min note the sensor temp and set that as the base of the curve, or 0%.
Then play a game for half an hour or so or use some sort of intensive load for a while with the fans at max speed, note the temp and use that as the top of the curve controller or 100%.
By adjusting the fan min and mix speeds earlier it means we can use a simple 0 to 100% curve controller, without trying to set min & max speeds in the controller itself.

Your done. You can then make small adjustments to min and max speeds of the fans or adjust the curve controller a degree or so either way if you aren't happy with it, but it should smoothly adjust the fan speeds based on how hard the system is working, slowly ramping up to full speed and slowly cooling down to idle speeds.

How to I make a current backup of the database
Does the profile backups have all my controllers, alarm configs, etc or do I copy the database file back in after upgrading to 2015-9
.pro = profile settings from the device
.page = an overview page from the aquasuite software

If you do an upgrade installation there is no need to save any of these files. While installation you only have to select that you want to keep your settings. The current aquasuite also performs an automatically backup of your device settings before it does the firmware update.

The red line is the starting value. If the controller works at the left side from this line it will have no effect on the output power. As soon as it crosses the line, the controller will start to work with an output.

That will not work correctly since your bypass sits into a line where the water is pushed through by the pump so it will also affect the pressure sensitive membrane inside the sensor. You should connect it in a "passive" way. Your reservoir also needs a pressure equalization membrane at its top or you have to connect the high port of the sensor to the top of the reservoir.

Thank you Shoggy, that confirms my concern.
