Curious how you guys have setup the aquaero on your desktops. This is what I have done so far, but some inspiration and tips would be welcome smile.gif

More specifically, the Aquabus is a I2C bus. Although I2C supports up to 127 devices, it's limited by the processing power of the microcontroller. In this case, the Aquaero supports up to 4 devices. Each I2C device needs its own unique address so that the master device (the Aquaero) can identify which slave device it's communicating with. This is why you need to change the address from the default of 12 to something else if you're using more than one device. The I2C address is not 'auto configurable' like USB is, so you need to set it first by connecting your device directly to USB so that the new bus address is written directly into the firmware.

Most interesting, but the aquaero aquabus actually supports more than 4 devices.
The table below, snipped from the aquaero manual, lists the devices supported.
The list is outdated (tubemeter eol), but is valid for the most part.

My personal suggestion would be to move to HWiNFO.
OHM's last update was Dec 2014, HWiNFO's last update was 5 days ago.
And HWiNFO is much more extensive in it's monitoring/reporting.
AND HWiNFO is also FREE..

This. I haven't had any issues what so ever.

Hey, I'd have a few question for the pros biggrin.gif

- Is there a way to expand the pwm fan channels for a single Aquaero?

- Can the Aquaero connected to the motherboard manage also the pwm fans that are connected to the latter?

- Does it easily accept and control fans when you plug only rpm and pwm wires while having power going directly from the PSU, or does it need a load or at least the grounding there?

- Can it eventually adjust for fans requiring different duty cycles and/or "inverted" pwm?

Thanks!! thumb.gif

What I meant was "support up to 4 simultaneous devices" smile.gif. You can see it in the snippet you posted, the very right column.

The official binary release for OHM was December 2014, but the project is still actively maintained at https://github.com/openhardwaremonitor/openhardwaremonitor. They keep it fairly up to date, but requires that you be able to build it from source using Visual Studio. I haven't found anybody running nightly builds for it.

You can use a splitter for any of the 4 fan headers, but any fan hooked up to the splitter will be controlled as a group (a single fan setting that gets applied to all the fans). If you want, say, 5 PWM fan controls, that's not possible.

Quote:
- Can the Aquaero connected to the motherboard manage also the pwm fans that are connected to the latter?

No, the fans must be connected to the Aquaero. The Aquaero cannot control fans that are connected to the motherboard. You will likely want to hook up the fans to the Aquaero anyway, because through the motherboard you're usually restricted to controlling the fans only based on the CPU temp. The Aquaero can control the fans based on any of its sensors. You can feed the Aquaero 'software sensors', like your CPU temp and GPU temp from OpenHardwareMonitor, HWInfo, or AIDA64, and control the fans based off of those temps, though you would only be able to get those temps after the system starts up.

Quote:
- Does it easily accept and control fans when you plug only rpm and pwm wires while having power going directly from the PSU, or does it need a load or at least the grounding there?

It's possible to control the fans by only plugging in the RPM and PWM wires, while having the fan power connected directly to the PSU. However, if you're trying to minimize the load on the Aquaero, know that the 4 channels can handle 30W each. This video shows an Aquaero 6 having no problems controlling 40 fans and 2 pumps:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UUgfhtVdModYnnBj0VbXagbQ&v=DPQaMowIrmU

The Aquaero takes a Molex connector on its back, so it can provide quite a bit of power. Also, the Aquaero has rheostats with built-in thermal sensors (called 'Fan amplifiers' by Aquacomputer). If you're using PWM fans you don't need to be concerned about them, but if you're voltage controlling the fans, the lower the fan speed, the hotter these rheostats will get. Once they reach 100 C, the Aquaero will automatically run the fans at 100% until the rheostats cool down. You'd need quite a few non-PWM fans hooked up for this to happen though.

Quote:
- Can it eventually adjust for fans requiring different duty cycles and/or "inverted" pwm?

Yes, you can set a different duty cycle for each of the 4 fan headers. For PWM, you can also set the number of pulses per rotation, which acts as a divider for the RPM. There's also a "start boost" setting which is only useful for voltage-controlled fans. It will run the fans at a certain speed for a certain number of seconds on startup before switching back to the standard configuration. This is useful for fans that need a higher starting voltage to overcome static friction. I'm not sure what inverted PWM is though, first time I've heard that term used.

Actually, if you count the bus addresses listed, there are 17, which I believe means the aquaero is able of communicating with 17 devices total.
The tubemeter is eol, but I think that address was reassigned... farbwerk maybe?
There are only 4 addresses designated for MPS devices, so there is a limit of four there. (now I'm wondering what the MPS acronym stands for).

Indeed, but I was addressing the comment more to the user who wants a monitoring/reporting program that interfaces with aquasuite and doesn't require programing knowledge to keep current. I see more question from OHM users than from HWiNFO users on these boards.
