Help with Aquaero 6 setup - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Can use them for led's from what I understand.
Also regarding the pwm fans. If using something like the swiftech 8 way hub. There is 0% fan load on the A6 fan output. The power is direct from sata connector, there may be a 4 pin molex version as well. Only the pwm signal is from the A6 and the rpm from one fan is reported back.

Yeah i think i understood that correctly. It basically checks the RPM of that one fan, but since they're all connected, any changes made to that one fan are made to all fans, right?



OK, so I’m wanting to pull the trigger on all of this tonight. I’m going to list out my parts, if someone could give them a once-over. I was having a bit of a hard time figuring out the proper reservoir, pump, and pump top that all go correctly together.

Aquaero 6 XT (53146)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=3093
Aquaero 6 XT heatsink (53158)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=3153
Aquaero temp sensor (53066) (inline, somewhere in loop)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2291
Temp sensor 2 (53067) (after radiator or pump)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2293
Aquacomputer pressure equalization valve (53138) (It also says this comes with my pump adapter)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2933
Aquacomputer filter (34018) (still on the fence about this. I mean the loop is closed and I’ll clean everything beforehand….
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2421
Aquaero black faceplate (53126)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2852
Aquaero D5 pump with USB x2 (41093)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2901
Aquaero pump adapter for aqualis base with fill level sensor. This will be the one connected to the reservoir. (41095)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2926
Aqualis base for pump adapters – 450 ml. Don't need the waterfall effect, but it had LED ports that i could plug something into(34044)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2923
Aquaero pump adapter for second pump, there will be no reservoir on this one. (41094)
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2925

Things I’m still unclear on:
1) For pump adapters with fill level sensor, that sensor is built in right? I just need to hook it up?
2) It says in the product description on my pump adapter:
a. The fill level sensor features an integrated microcontroller with USB and aquabus interface, a programmable alarm output and an external temperature sensor input.
b. What do they mean by the external temperature sensor input? Is there just a place that I could plug the wire of a temp sensor in? External means it would be ambient air temp or external as in “not integrated into the top” but the sensor would measure water temp?
3) Since there won’t be a reservoir on my second pump, the parts listed above will work correctly right? Just have the “out” port on the reservoir/pump patched directly into the “in” port on the second pump head.
4) Should I get 2 flow sensors? I mean water flow should be the same throughout the loop, so it would be more for redundancy. Anyone had one fail?
5) Is 2 pumps enough for this build? I think I have room to put a third pump right next to the other 2. It’d be tight but I think I could.

The additional pressure equalisation membrane makes no sense. You will not need it since you already get one with the fill level sensor.

If you want to connect everything via aquabus you should get two y-adapters and a 4-pin cable for the fill level sensor.

The fill level sensor is already integrated into the pump adapter that you have selected. The option for an external temperature sensor is just another 2-pin header like the aquaero has eight of them.

Using two flow sensors make no sense and to get a second one only as a backup is a bit crazy wink.gif

No idea how your final setup will look like but with two D5 pumps you should not get any problems at all. Very likely that even one pump will be already enough.

Just in case you want to order from us: get the passive heatsink in black. The red one will be out of stock for the next few weeks.

Thanks for your help Shoggy! I appreciate it.

Hi all Master

I need some help here.
I got a AQ6 Pro, may I know how Could I install 2pcs Aquabus D5(P# 41093) and 2pcs Non USB flow sensor(P# 53068) together? Abit confuse when I saw the manual......

Thx for here

You can connect two pumps with a y-adapter cable to the aquabus port.

To make this work you have to connect the pumps via USB first and change their communication priority to aquabus in the system tab of the aquasuite software. Since both pumps will use the same aquabus ID number by default you will have to change it for one of them.

To connect a second 3-pin flow sensor you have to change the configuration of fan channel #1. In the aquasuite go to tab sensors and select the box for the flow sensors. Select flow sensor 2 and set its mode to enabled (fan=flow). This way the first fan channel will act as a flow sensor now. Of course you will be no longer able to use this fan port for anything else.
