This explanation makes no sense to me. They are just numbers and subtracting one from the other shouldn't be hard.

Unless (and I am guessing here) ... the aquao system stores all temps as C and does a temp conversion for display purposes (ie oh ... Mr Man wants the temps in F ... then show C / 100 * 180 + 32 then ...).

Now ... if that conversion happens right at the end ... the very last step ... then I can understand this system not liking to show deltas in F.

Consider temp 1 = 10°C ... this would be shown as 50°F
Consider temp 2 = 20°C ... this would be shown as 68°F

Now ... if we take the delta of Temp 1 and 2 ... the internal number is 10 ... but the display conversion would make that 50. WRONG. The delta should be 18°F. The calculation is off by 32. 32! That looks awfully familiar.

What do do?

Easy ... trick the system. The delta takes care of the +32 (they cancel out) so you can get the display code to ignore the 32. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the code so I have to bake the 32 in there so that the display code can remove it.

Now the delta code should be .. (Temp2 - 32 * 100/180) - Temp1

With numbers ...
= (20 - 32*100/180) - 10
= (20 - 17.7778) - 10
= 2.2222 - 10
= -7.7778

And when you plug that internal number into the display conversion routine ... -7.7778 / 100 * 180 + 32 = 18

All of this is based on a guess ... so if the guess is wrong ... this is all wrong. I haven't got my aquaero plugged in at the moment to test it. Can someone else try?

You can solder it to create a longer cable or pick up any PWM fan extensions cable.

or if you have to supplies you can create your own extensions cable.

I created my own to reach my 6XT.

I need one last question, as I stated before I'm using modmytoys PCB's with 4 fans connected but could I also add a DarkSide LED strip as well, will the fan conncter on the Aquaero be able to power this without burning out, thanks.
you would need to calculate the amp draw of the leds yourself

The LED strip at maximum brightness is 12v and the Aquaero fan conncters current is 2.5 A per output voltage, resulting in a maximum power of 30 W at 12v, how do I go about calculating this isn't my strongest point.

Check the specs of the LED first and the fans if needed. Even contact the seller and or mfger if you're having trouble finding that kind of info. Add those two up and that should tell you how much room you have to play with.

At 12V 1amp is 12watt or in another way 12watt@12v=1amp. You should be able to find out how many watt or .???amp the led strip is and convert everything from there to the same value.

Previous responses to SpringY1989's question pretty much provided the needed answer, but he might like to try digesting Calculating Electrical Power. It's written for laypeople, and a summary/simplification follows:

Power = Current x Voltage, or P = IE

where I represents the amount of current passing through a circuit, and;

E represents the voltage applied to that circuit.

The result of the equation, P, is typically expressed in watts and/or fractions of watts (using decimal notation); hence:

30 W at 12v, or 30 = some current x 12, then solve for some current to get the maximum current (2.5 amps) you should apply to that circuit.

You may also wish to take note of what's commonly called inrush or startup current, as it applies to leds, especially if you're going to be wiring them in parallel (vs. series). Though not as long in duration as the startup current for inductive devices like motors, similar principles apply. Check with Shoggy and/or search this thread, as there's some pretty good info throughout it, and my understanding is that the aquaero provides limited protections for this purpose.

Excerpted from the content found at that last link:

The maximum current per channel is 2,5A (30W at 12V) without any special cooling. The aquaero 6 does not even have a passive heatsink! Anyway, we will also offer a waterblock for the aquaero 6 since it will allow to go a bit further with a maximum of 3A (36W at 12V). Of course the voltage regulators also handle short peaks above this rating to make sure that fans and pumps will spin up. The new controllers also feature some new directly integrated security features. For example they can switch of a channel in less than 1/100000s if you have a short circuit. Also the temperature, current and voltage monitoring has been improved.
Quick Question: What Aquacomputer MPS Pressure Sensor should I get. I'm a little confused with the three versions.

Pumps: 2x D5 pumps
Rads: 560 x2 & 420 x2
Waterblocks: 4x EK, Aquacomputer & Heatkiller.
