After all the research I did more than half a year ago when I first purchased it, the only way I found out to really disable it was to use a soldering iron to physically remove the speaker. tongue.gif

If you like, you could probably ask in the Lamptron section of the forums. There is one rep I know of and have talked to, @Luciel. He could definitely help you out and tell if you if there is a definite way to do it via the controller or not.

Under "Hardware Vendors," here is a direct link.

It seems like the last time Luciel was on was a couple days ago, so I wouldn't be able to tell you when to expect an answer. You might be able to get an answer from someone else in there however.

On the back of your CW, there is a black cylinder with a hole in the middle.
That is the speaker.
Mine is covered up with a label "Remove after washing".
If you keep that label on, the beep won't be as loud.
If your label has been removed, by you or prior to purchase, you can just put a piece of tape to cover up the hole.
That will tame down the beep a fair bit.

Also, I want to ask you something.

When you turn the dial, does it ever not click and you have to keep turning the dial until it clicks in again?

Easier and less risky than removing the speaker.
Just fill it with glue via that small hole in it.
The glue will harden and disable the beeping.

Put the controller face down while the glue hardens to insure proper glue penetration.
Crazy glue would probably work best.

Thank you so much, didnt pay too much attention to the rear of it I put it in my build as soon as it came in the mail and just attached the fan extensions.

As for your question, I haven't used the cw611 yet other than during the leak test, and filling my loop, but turning it on and off the beeping was already getting too loud for me.

I do notice that sometimes when I scroll sometimes it doesn't click, very random though, not every turn, it'll skip a few clicks sometimes, that's for sure though. I'm going to give it a week or so of playing with it, and hopefully if it doesn't bug me too much I'll just keep it, If not I'll either send it back to frozencpu or try to rma it.

Of course I wouldn't disable the speaker before that period is over though tongue.gif

When you look at the cw611 at a angle do you see the bare light shining through the sides of the screen sometimes? I get it when I look at the controller from bottom

I have to admit there are a few bugs about that controller.

- Yes, a bit of light leak around the edges. Thought I didn't notice until you pointed that out.
- The dial not "clicking" all the time.
- The fan curve not allowing me to set it below 25° C.
- RPM not detected below 1000 RPM, for my fans anyways.

But, honestly, all those bugs considered, it's still the best fan controller I have ever owned. I'd get it again without a second thought.
Only thing better in my book is the Aquaero 6. But I can't use it because I use Linux most of the tine.

I don't have an Aquaero (yet, though I am considering replacing my CW611 with an AQ6 XT) to know for sure, but unless I'm mistaken the controller still operates manually, independently of the Aquasuite software, similar to how the Lamptron does, doesn't it? You can control it manually at the controller, or with the remote control (if you got the 'XT' model with a remote or bought it separately) or you can also control it through the software. No?

Edit: Also seems to be some Linux support mentioned in their forums:

http://forum.aquacomputer.de/index.php?form=Search&searchID=825711&highlight=linux
- - - - -

Anywho, seeing as I shut down / restart my computers so infrequently, like less than once a month if I can help it, the CW611 startup beep never really bothered me but it looks like you could probably hush it a bit by just putting a dab of silicone sealant or similar (a couple layers of tape maybe?) over the little hole in the piezoelectric speaker on the bottom left if looking at it from the rear.
