Aquaero 6 pump compatibility.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, I'm currently in the need for a fan controller. I'm still doing air cooling, but will be transitioning to water cooling over the next couple months and need one that can control pumps as well.

I'm actually putting a controller of this type in my system asap, as my PWM fans run way too fast at idle, on my current controller. Sounds like a jet engine on the lowest setting.

The two fan controllers I'm looking at are the Lamptron cw611, and Aquaero 6 line. I'm most likely picking up a Swiftech Mcp35x2, and Swiftech mentions the pump won't be controlled correctly by all fan controllers. In their limited list of compatible and incompatible controllers neither of those two are listed. Does anyone know if the Mcp35x2 can be controlled by those two controllers?


For the Aquaero does anyone know how extending to additional channels works? I cannot find many reviews on it in English.

Lamptron cw611 has voltage control only. Not going to be any good for controlling a Swiftech MCP35x2.

Aquaero 6 has 4 channels that can be set to either voltage control or PWM in Aquasuite. It can control an MCP35X2 on one channel no problem. If you think you need additional channels over what the Aquaero can handle by itself, you can add one or more PowerAdjusts each of which would add an additional voltage control channel that you also can control in Aquasuite.

I can confirm that the Aquaero 6 and MCP35X2 work perfectly together. Only one channel from the AQ6 is required to drive both pumps in the MCP35X2.

I use this exact same combo myself and it works a treat.

@Costas nice, I just got mine earlier today. Now, I just have to figure out how to hook up and use all of the features.

Yeh the AQ6 takes some time to learn all of its features.
