M3 is the right thread but unfortunately 8mm in length was also wrong for me. 5mm would be a much better option. I bought m3x8 today.

That is the length I used to do exactly the same thing you are doing:




5 mm is the default screw size that comes with the aquaero. But if you are using on to integrate on the case front and a tad more length would be required. I am afraid 5 mm will be too short but it might work....In any case is easy to cut 1-2 mm out of the 8 mm if it is too long for you case.

did you integrate on the case or did you just used to replace the frontplate? For normal use with the frontplate 6 mm is just perfect and better than the 5 mm. But if you are incorporating on the case between 6-8 would be better depending on the thickness of the case and the amount of countersunk you are doing on the case.

I intend to remove the front face plate. It looks like you have kept your faceplate on your aquaero. Thats where the difference will be in length im guessing.

The Corsair fans will work but the more fans you have per channel the less range of PWM control you will have. You won't be able to get the RPMs as low as with one or two fans.

Unfortunately the new Corsair fans use the same protocol as the old fans. This review discusses it:

It was just a replacement to a black faceplate.

I will be using a Swiftech powered PWM Splitter, so im not sure the same applies.

It still applies as the priblem is how corsair did not follow the specs for pmw fans

hey everyone, just needing some help deciding what im doing.

i currently run a aquaero 5 xt and want to run 10 fans, 3 on 3 rads, one rear exhaust 140mm on a new build im doing. all corsair sp120 except for 1 140mm sp140.

will i be able to run these over all the different headers on the 5 xt or do i need to switch over to aquaero 6?

will be running the aquacomputer d5 with aquabus, aqualis 450ml res with fill level sensor, farbwerk and so on all via aquabus!

You should be just fine, as long as you are not intending to control the fans over PWM. If you want four channels with PWM, you need to go to the Aquaero 6's. Each channel on the Aq5 can handle upto 1.6A, and three fans will not be a problem. See the screenshot from the manual:

They did, it's just not very forgiving specs. Intel PWM spec 1.3 is designed with 1 device/header in mind.
