Google Zener Diode, and you'll see how they work so they can create a 5V source from the 12V that's present on the power pins of the A6 fan connectors.

But why do you have 2 of each wire ?? and did you solder the diode and resistors on to the fan terminals?

I see now.. you have 2 D5 pump cables underneath your sleeving smile.gif right ?

I'm trying to post it all with links in the 1st post.

AIDA64 is working for me without a hiccup so far.

Open Hardware Monitor, but the link for the Aquaero version no longer seems to be active. redface.gif

Yes, that cable was made as a Y cable for a dual D5 setup, but could seem confusing with the extra wires.

The diode and large resistor are each soldered to a terminal.

Here's the easiest way to implement the mod, . . . . as a short, 2 wire extension for the PWM and tach signals
:







Darlene


Update:

Here's the little modded extension cable installed, note that the pullup resistor is a 3.3K, basically a workable compromise for either single or dual D5's, but really better suited to a single:




Here's the scope with only 1 of the D5's PWM line connected, notice that the pulse voltage is right about 3.4V max, and very near 0V min.

Ideally, the max should be right at 5V, but the D5's electronics load the circuit down some.





Now here's the scope with both D5's PWM line connected, notice it's now loaded down to about 2.5V.

The lower max pulse voltage can be accounted for with slightly higher percentage settings in Aquasuite.




Note also that max voltage for both single and dual setups does go up a little as the pulse width is increased.


What's really important in both cases, is that the pulse's "off time" voltage stays very close to 0V.

If the pullup resistor is lowered to 1k or so, the max voltage comes up very close to 5V, but the "off time" voltage climbs up closer to .8V or so, and then the pump doesn't see it as off time any more , and runs full speed with no regards to the pulse width.

That's why if you have a dual D5, use a 2.2K when you make your cable, and a 3.3K if you have a single D5.

Have you got a link, please?


You mean the latest Aquasuite Version?

It's the auto download of the latest version, it just worked for me.

Hardware Info 64 seems to have the most points of reference out of the freeware utilities, including VRM temps. I have had issues trying to sync AIDA for w/e reason i'm not sure. Maybe because iv'e only tried using the freeware versions.

Have you got a link to where you got it, and is there a version #, please?

Thanks in advance,

D.

There used to be a special version of Open Hardware Monitor v 0.5.1 I think it was (not at home so I can't look) that was specifically written for the aquasuite software. The link for it is now dead, so the latest version may incorporate it, but I'm not positive. smile.gif

I use the latest version and it works fine with Aquasuite.

Good to know Wisk! thumb.gif Going to download it when I get home as there are a couple issues with v 0.5.1. Thanks for the heads up! biggrin.gif

only reason I use this over open is that it has a few more probe pickups. Socket, VRM, and one of them seems to be something similar to TJ Max.

My amazing Aquaero 6 XT

I'll be adding an AquaComputer Aquabus pump this summer. smile.gif

So what does the red blinking LED signify under the aquabus terminals? Data Transmission?

Alina: I wish for Bruce's heaven
Bruce: follow me, I'll take you there smile.gif
