There is so much in this thread it is rather hard to find a direct answer so hopefully someone can either point me to a page if they know about it or just help me in general. I am 90% done with my wiring on my new rig and I just mounted my AQ6 Pro lastnight, I want to verify a few things with some knowledged users.

Looking at the back bottom of the AQ6 the first two plugs are "PWM" followed by 1-4 Fan heads. Currently, I am running x8 Thermaltake LED ring fans plugged into a single 8way PWM Fan splitter, I wanted to verify where I should connect the cord coming from the 8way splitter. The splitter actually came with a standard 4pin PWM plug on it, so right now I have it plugged into Fan1. It appears only 2 cables are actually wired which I am assuming is the PWM cables, since the splitter has direct power via a "4pin Molex".

1. Will Fan 1 header on the AQ6 be efficient enough to control my fans? - (I am ok with them all being at the same RPM but I am looking to utilize temp sensors to speed/slow them down).

2. I am using a Aquacomputer D5 pump with PWM input/speed signal, which header on the AQ6 should it go into?

3. May be a dumb question but I just want to be sure, the USB plug at the top goes directly to my MB for software control?

Other then that, everything else seems self explanatory. - Thank you in advanced! thumb.gif

1. yes. set the channel to pwm control. Yes, you can control all fans setting a controller based on you temp sensor in the Aquaero

2. connect to one of the other 3 fan channels in the aquaero and set the channel to pwm control too.

3. yes. be careful with the polarity. The blacks wires are ground and the red is 12 5v. check you MB manual and orientation of the usb 2 port on the MB.

edit - thks Shoggy.

If I order another Aquaero 6 XT for another computer, can I just swap units between the two without problems?

My current computer has the red LEDs in the front. Now we can order it with blue LEDs, can I swap the red unit for the blues and not have any problems with the software?
Should just be plug and play - correct?

You would need to back up settings and then import them.


They won't transfer settings automatically (some people use multiple aquaeros imagine how bad that would be)

To add to the above the 2 channels labeled pwm are NOT for fans EVER!

They are pwm 12v ports. (1a), they are to be used with 12v PWM motors (like actuators ect and leds ie anything else 12v that are able to take pwn

Hello all, I have two questions.
1 Would it be redundant to connect my flow 400 alarm to the flow connection on my Aquaero if I already have it connected through USB and aquaport?

2 If yes to the first question, is their a difference if I connect either the alarm connection on my flow 400, or connect the RPM/Tacho to the CPU fan header on my motherboard? Even though I have my motherboard set up to ignore the error during bootup, it still shows the alarm and I think it may be slowing my boot process.

The only port where you can connect the mps flow sensor is the aqbaus port and nothing else. It is useful to be able to use its sensor values for alarm actions that are performed by the aquaero.

The rpm signal of the flow sensor can only tell if everything is OK or not while the aquabus connection also transfers the precise data to use different levels like warning and alarm.

@Gabrielzm - red wire of USB is 5V, not 12V wink.gif

Well my primary issue was getting rid of of the CPU fan error during bootup. I connected the alarm port on my flow 400 to the CPU header on my motherboard and that fixed it.

The RPM port on the Aquaero is there to send a signal to the motherboard. That's how I have mine hooked up.

So the RPM header on the AQ 6 is used to send a signal to the CPU fan header on the MB to help with shutdowns in case of a emergency you're saying? What signal is sent to the CPU fan header and can the same thing be done with the Flow header on the AQ 6 or is that strictly for flow sensors IIRC.

Yes the RPM header on the Aquaero sends a generic signal to the CPU fan header. I'm sure you could set up some kind of alarm, however I've never done that so not sure how. The flow header is just for flow meters.
