And That's all good and Dandy but I still don't feel I've justified the price of the Aqaero 6 T Fan Controller. I will have to get the fans first to see what the opportunity may be.

yep, same fan as mine, they are 3 pins,

connect your pump on CPU fan headers
buy a lamptron fan controller

will do the job

but, like I said, your flow meter will give you the temp of your coolant but with a Lamptron , you will not able to control fans from coolant temp

but....I think, (not sure about that), you can buy a poweradjust USB and connect fan on it (25w) and able to control via Aquasuite software

I need to test that....................


EDIT: the poweradjust USB is 25w, your fan is 0.11a, add a buffer for safety

0.15a = 1.8w

you can connect 12 fan on one power adjust

how many fan you will have on radiator?

Yes that one is voltage regulated. Here is a great controller: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/19760/bus-348/Lamptron_CW611_36W_-_6_Channel_Aluminum_Liquid_Cooling_Controller_-_Black_CW611.html?tl=g30c229s882

But honestly, for this price. I would get the AQ5 lt which cost less and do more. But if you are on a budget then wait for the fans and test it on the rads to see what you think about noise before you make any decisions.

Edit: Yep, poweradjut migh be a very good and budget friendly solution. However the USB version is at 54 at FZCPU right now and lack PWM support. THe aq5 lt runs for 75 and do have one pwm fan header that can be used for your pumps.

Isn't Latency of Ram "Better" at 15 than a 16 Latency?

Found these Dom Plats for less than the 16 Latency!

DOM PLAT 15 Latency

not sure about Ram
im not a fan of spend money on these corsair at double price


ohh the new version is 30w and 36 with the optional heat sink


you can connect up to 16 fans with optional heat sink

But if the Fans are only 3pin and no PWM what would be the point? Would that even be logical?

EDIT: and what about the Ram Latency?

3pin fans work with any fan controller. 3pin controllers are virtually not current limited, so get y-splitters, any fan controller for 30$ you like optically and be happy about it.
post #108 of 1980
aquaero 5 and power adjust can control 3 pin fans,

the point of PWM is you can put a PWM splitter on auqaero 5 and control your pump speed from flow rate or temp (mps 400)
post #109 of 1980
Your pumps are pwm are they not? So with the AQ5 lt you can adjust the speed of the pumps with the pwm fan header available. But then again, you can do that too using the MB fan header and save the money....

about the ram will not make any noticeable differences in performance mate compared to other kits.

post #110 of 1980
PWM splitters are a bad Idea in general, unless you supply the power from outside the controller.

@CautiosOne Depends if you plan to change the fans to pwm ones someday. If you do, a "proper" controller is a better longterm solution, otherwise you really DON'T need it.
