Just 3 fans, flow sensor and temperature sensor with possible future upgrades
You would not need a wb for an Aquero just for that hardware-the stock heatsink will be fine.
You could always add a wb or a poweradjust at a later date, should your system need it.
Have a look here:
(XT/Pro same controller more or less-XT has extras and a different 'face')
IMO though, an Aquero would be a waste of money for your needs, there are many other good fan controllers out there that are cheaper and can do the job.

This is actually not true.
(and before the trolls come out-yes im selling a new one in the marketplace-nought to hide)
I actually spoke to Sven(Shoggy) around a month ago, and the use of a wb or a Poweradjust are SOLELY
dependent on what you will be controlling.
Eg, i was told that i could run 2 sets of 3 AP 15s on separate channels( ch 3 and 4), and also run a D5 on ch 1
-the running of the pump will provide NO problems if:
ch 2 is left empty, and or you run your pump constantly at lv 3 upwards.
The wb and the poweradjust allow for more intricate control, such as wanting to run your pump at lower lvs etc
.-fans do not come into the equation, unless you use stupid amounts of fans, they can be used easily without a wb.
