You'll need a 6 series to have all channels PWM capable.

If it's any other PWM D5 than the one specifically from Aqucomputer, you'll need a little mod for it to work with the Aquaeros.

I do not have the space for the A6. Check my build log. I'm in a fractial Node 804 without 5,25" drive bays.

You could run the non-PWM fans off the other fan headers on the 5 LT that are not PWM.

Or you could take a look at the Aquaero 6.

Hope this helps.

I want to run the 2 Fan groups separately + Pump. I would't mind putting everything to one groupe if they were all the same Fans and without the pump, but they're not. So I need/want 3 separate channels.

If you want to run all the fans and pumps at the same PWM duty cycle off the same controller/curve then the 5LT should work. It's OK that the pumps and fans have different speeds (maybe some outlier use case caveats) - you'll be controlling them by % not by speed

Diva's being modest regarding the PWM D5 mod - it works (my two EK D5s running this way off a 2way PWM splitter) and is known around here as the 'Diva Mod'

I could handle that mod, but yea, it doesn't look too easy rolleyes.gif

FYI: At the moment I'm runnning this setup off my CPU PWM header for the pump, and one GPU fan controller PWM/mod for all the four PWM fans (Via 4-way splitter +molex) But I want to be able to control everything at one place. So is there any kind of fan controller that could handle that. Isn't it possible to run the PWM fans off of voltage regulated headers, without the PWM signal?

EDIT: Just checked with my old Boxed Intel CPU Fan on an old PSU, I can run that one off of 5 volts without having the PWM signal pluged and it works fine, so shouldn't I in theory be able to do the same thing on the A5LT?

You could take the display off the front of an A6 and use it just like a 5LT and mount it anywhere you can squeeze it in.

Expensive solution, but an excellent one.

With my MPS400 it seems like I can't use a custom curve without having USB connected. Is that correct?

With it set up priority to Aquabus I get a reading under the flow sensors tab, but the choices for curves narrow to include only hi-flow disgea etc.

No, those settings don't do anything when using a flow sensor other than the mechanical 3 pin model.
The settings for the mps flow meters are applied and saved to the unit itself and it just sends a value to the Aquaero.

You don't have one of the 5.25 bay racks available?.

I have an aquaero 6 pro and I NEVER look at the LCD screen, everything is done via aquasuite.

Check out my build Log in the signature, I got a big radiator where those cages were supposed to be. Plus the A6 is like more than double the expences.
Could I not just plug my PWM's into the 3 pin Fan Headers?

You've been given a solution that will suit your needs . .

It's really the only solution you have that doesn't go against PWM fan manufacturer's recommendations that you do not use variable voltage to control their speed.


Do what you want, it's your build . . .



Darlene




Food for thought:

If it was really OK, as in works reliably for extended lengths of time, to use variable voltage to control the speed of PWM fans, then why don't the manufacturers put that in their advertising to boost sales of their usually higher end fans . . . .
post #5759 of 11094
I am wanting to use Corsair PWM fans, I know you can hook up a lot of fans to the Aquaero with PWM.
I know there was an issue with the first release of the Aquaero were there was a problem with the Corsair fans...

Does anyone know how I can get it fixed for my Aquaero (got it when it first came out) and what the actual problem is?

I have the Aquaero 6 XT

You need to look at your A6 pcb, and see if it has the original 100 ohm protective resistors on the PWM inputs, or the newer 47 ohm ones.

These are the new ones and are good for easily 8 of the Corsair fans, and usually 9 or 10 work acceptably.



If the resistors in those locations have 101 on them, then they were amongst the very, very first Aquaeros released and unless you have someone who can change them out, you're out of luck with more than about 4, maybe 5 of the Corsair PWM fans.

You really just have to try it.

Corsair may have changed the value of its internal pullup resistor so that the newer fans work better.
