Assuming you are splitting just the PWM signal and power is provided to pumps by molex/sata a standard splitter is fine. Depending on the version of D5 pump you have some do not work with the Aquaero pwm signal. Search for Diva Mod in this thread.

Thanks. I'm using Aquacomputer pumps, so was just looking for confirmation on how to split the PWM signal.

Another thing, some pwm splitters have all four wires split. You will want the rpm reported from only one pump.

Thinking it may be a petite collector for 4 MPS/aquabus devices if RPM pin is connected on all 4 male connectors

Receivedt a reply from modDIY - the device is a true 4 or 5 port PWM splitter with only one (1) RPM signal being passed on.

Need some help clarifying some thing and choosing between two product.

I was thinking about getting a Aquaero, not sure which one of them, although I would love to get version 6 XT, it is quite expansive for me as the dollars is really high back here in Brazil. As it is, I actually considering buying the version 5 LT.

But I just saw that Aquacomputer just launched the Aquastream - Ultimate Version, which might or might no satisfy all of my needs as knowing the water temp and the "virtual flow". Problem is I already have a pump in my loop, a MCP50X from Swiftech and I guess that would kill the virtual flow feature.

Now I am confused and don't know what to do. Also there is this rumor that Aquacomputer might have a new version of the Aquaero on the oven for a release in 2016, adding even more to the turmoil of choosing...

I'm considering purchasing a the Aquastream Ultimate Version but I have a few questions. My configuration consists of two EK XE 480mm rads, two EK XE 360mm rads, three 980Ti's, and a Intel Core i7 5930K CPU. I'm using hard tubing and my case is a Caselabs STH10 Case. The two 480mm rads are in the top of the case and the two 360mm rads are in the center section. The pump will be located in the bottom section. My concern is that a single pump won't be enough for this much hardware. My current pump is a EK-XTOP Dual DDC 3.2 PWM. I have an Aquaero 6XT with a 5LT slave.

Will a single Aquastream Ultimate be enough to cool my system? And other then the control features, would it be a downgrade from my EK pump?
Thanks.

Myself. I cannot recommend the aquastream pump. I have an XT ultra you can have real cheap if you want and then can upgrade to the ultimate version. Had it in my loop consisting of 1-560 80mm, 1-280 80mm and a 60mm 280 all alphacool, Two Titan Hydrocoppers and an EK supremacy cpu block. With the onboard VRM cooler attached flow was barely over .5 gpm. Removed the vrm cooler and flow was just over .6 gpm. While it worked imo the pump does not deal with restriction well and having two in series accomplishes nothing due the control implemented in the pump. For reference at this time after upgrading to an X99 system with the same components and two D5's in series I am getting 1.4-1.5 gpm.

Only real reason to get the 6 over the 5 is if you need more PWM control options. The 5 only has 1 PWM connector. As far as the Aquastream pump see my other post. Regarding a new release Aquaero, If you are questioning spending more on the 6 versus the 5 I would say you most likely have no need for the new version.

And the vrms run much much cooler on the 6 if you control fans with voltage

How many radiators and blocks do you have? I am using the same pump and I love that pump. I am also debating getting the Aquastream Ultimate but I may not need it. This little pump does a great job.

I am asking about how many blocks and radiators because I am using an Aquaero 5 LT with the same pump that you have. Its small, its strong, and its quiet. And it works very nicely with the Aquaero 5 LT.
