Brain is probably one of my all-time favourite animated characters. Probably my favourite if you don't include anime ^-^

And I was worried about buying that used car from a gypsy in a back alley at midnight under a full moon, might be a little risky . . . . biggrin.gif

I feel much more comfortable with it now after that pic. . . . . .


On a more serious note, the Aquaero is the top tier when it comes to watercooling oriented controllers, it truly is in a class by itself in that regard . .

The hardware capabilities, the expansion potential afforded by its accessory add-ons, all in a class by themselves . .

And then there's Aquasuite . . . . the software interface, nothing close to the same league.


When you look at what you spend on a case, and then look at how many rads and fans you can work with in that case, you can really come to appreciate the amount of control the Aquaero gives you.

Get the 6 series, it's only a few more dollars and the technology is a generational leap ahead of the 5 series.

I just dont Know If I will have the "Brains" to really be able to use it's full potential. You Know? Would the 5 series be a better place to start?

if you buy one, for just a couple of dollars, buy the 6,

if you think you will not use it, buy a lamptron and set you fan manually

when its only for fan control
im a fan of using motherboard software to control PWM fan

but if I need something serious, I always buy Aquaero

like I said, I run my rig in passive mode until the coolant reach 37C

your pump are PWM?

your fan are PWM?

There's a lot of very experienced users in the Aquaero Owners Club thread who can, and gladly will, help you get your system set up and walk you thru the software part.

The Aqua Computer rep is always handy as well to answer questions and help out with solving problems.

The Cautious One


No . . .

They both have the same learning curve and use the same Aquasuite software.

The 5 is just older hardware technology with less current capacity on the outputs and with more heat generated in the process than the 6.

The 6 also has all 4 channels selectable for either voltage or PWM control, where the 5 only has 1 such channel.

In truth, most of us expected that the 5 would drop significantly in price once the 6 was being stocked in quantity, thereby making it at least a viable option for more "tight with the bucks" builds, but it didn't . .

So there's no reason not to just get the 6 from the start . . . even if you don't need all the capabilities right away, you have them available for when you upgrade/change things later.

Pumps are PMW, The Spectre Pro's..... Uh? I Dont think they are? I thought you had the Spectre Pro Leds' ?

I totally understand. Just was bouncing the Idea around. You see how hard it is to convince me to spend another 200+ dollars eh? Thanks Diva and Snef

There are two versions of the Bitfenix fans mate volt regulated (3 pins) or pwm regulated (4 pins). This goes for the new series as well as for the older series. So what exactly did you order V or PWM regulated.

THis It doesn't specify. Has the picture of the 7v hook up. That's it

If it has a 7v hookup, it's not PWM. PWM bases on constant 12V voltage, and the speed is regulated by the PWM signal on pin nr.4 of the fan header. The pwm technology is a bit more expensive, but provides more control, way more reliability and approx 2x the lifetime of a nonpwm fan.
