post #62791 of 106451
Not sure where else to ask this, and you guys always seem to know the answers thumb.gif

I have a Lamptron CW611 with max 36 watts per channel. I'm wondering if it would be alright to connect an NZXT Grid to one channel of the Lamptron and run 8 GT AP-15s off that single channel. Then I would get another NZXT Grid and connect it to a second channel on my Lamptron and run 6 more GT AP-15s off that.

If that's possible, will I still be able to control the RPMs with the fan controller with so many fans on each channel?

I've done that multiple times. Keep in mind if you're exceeding the maximum wattage per channel, it will just slow down your fans. I've hooked up to eight 120mm fans on a single 30w channel. I kept it at 40% load all the time so it never got to the max output per channel.

If that's possible, will I still be able to control the RPMs with the fan controller with so many fans on each channel?

The GT AP-15 (1850 rpm) fan is rated at 83 mA (0.083 amps) & since watts = amps x volts they use less than 1 watt per fan (.083x12=0.996). I wouldn't go loading up 36 of them on a single channel though. Their startup amp ratting is 360 mA (.36 amps) which would be .36 x 12 = 4.32 watts per fan at startup. so even if you didn't account for the fact that the Lamptron is capable of handling a bit of extra load over it's rated capacity at startup you still could have eight AP-15s per channel and stay under it, but like I said, good fan controllers like the CW611 don't break a sweat at some extra amps at startup, so you could easily have 10 or more on a channel without coming anywhere near the full capacity of the controller.

I also have a Lamptron CW611 and have 8 GeLid Wing12s on one channel, and 6 on another, and @ 220 mA they're rated at more than 2.5 times the watts per fan as the GT AP-15.

As far as using the Grid goes, that's also what I'm using. I'm currently using two of them (8 fans on one and 6 on another), but be forewarned that the Grid splits the 3-pin feed to all 10 ports which isn't what you want for use with a fan controller. It's not hard to fix the issue though. Rather than re-invent the wheel, here's my post from the NZXT grid thread ...

Is the rpm (tach) signal wire split to all 10 ports in this NZXT hub?

If it is then this is basically useless to use with most fan controllers because the rpm speed inputs from all of the fans will corrupt the signal and the fan speed will not be correctly reported to the controller. Even cheap 3-pin fan splitter cables will only have all three wires going to one of the fan plugs, and just the 12v and ground to the rest.

If, as it should be, only one of the 3-pin outputs has the rpm signal wire, then which port is it? Unless you are going to connect fans to all 10 ports this is need-to-know info, but looking at it and the manual I'm not seeing it anywhere.

I bought two of these thinking they would be useful, but now I'm having second thoughts. I definitely don't want to have to cut the rpm signal wire on all the fans but one just to be able to use this hub with my fan controller.

EDIT:

I found my multimeter and found out for sure that all 3 inputs are output to all 3 pins on all 10 of the ports. sozo.gif

That's a HUGE FAIL on NZXT's part imho, but what could be done about it ... thinking.gif

Soooo, I took the two screws out and removed the PCB from its cover and took a small pair of wire cutters and snipped the rpm prong from all but one of the 10 output ports. biggrin.gif

And here's the one with 6 fans (push-pull on my 360 monsta) plugged into it ...

Unicr0nhunter, you are the man. Definitely going to copy you and order two of those hubs. Thanks!

Just a note about setting up auto shutdown with the Aquaero. Aqua suite does not need to be set to start with windows. The aquaero is an independant system.

Edit: to be accurate, if the aquaero is wired in then aqua suite does not need to be running. It may need to be running to use the software shutdown options that mimic a keyboard power key press, but seeing as the Aquaero is a USB device it may not even need it then.
Aqua suite is really just a monitoring and programming interface that is not even really needed. Depending on how many overwiew pages you have set up and the number of elements being used having aqua suite running all the time can cause excessive CPU and memory usage.

Anyone know of a single 5.25 fan controller with space for the 2 pin temp sensors? Was thinking of having a sensor in my resovoir and letting the fan controller ramp up and ramp down for me.

I'd prefer the XSPC kit, better block better pump bigger res. Also think the rad is better. But I have an Arc Mini and An Thermaltake S21. the Arc mini will be going under water first. It has 2 5.2 bays, which I would like to use, which is the only reason I'm looking at the Skywater. Its not a dual bay res.

I believe it was @fast_fate that did a build with a dual bay res mounted internally at the bottom of the case. The build had purple/magenta tubing and flow meter. Looked great.

Due to financial reasons l may have to scrap my plans for high end custom water loop with Phanteks Enthoo. Now I'm starting to settle for NZXT H440 for case and EK L360 water cooling kit.

Here's the specs:

- universal CPU water block: EK-Supreme LTX UNI CSQ 2013 (incl. mounting- & thermal material)
- radiator: EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)
- radiator fan: EK-FAN Silent 120-1600 RPM (3pcs)
- water pump / reservoir combo unit: EK-DCP 2.2 X-RES incl. Pump
- tubing: EK-TUBE ZMT Matte Black 16/10mm (2 meters)
- compression fittings: EK-CSQ Fitting 16/10mm - G1/4 Nickel (6 pcs)
- coolant concentrate: EK-Ekoolant UV Blue (100mL; for 1L of coolant)¨

Reviews seem good but I'm still wondering If there's any obvious weak points in this. My original plan was to go with Laing D5 pump but DCP 2.2 should be enough for my rig, right?

I will replace the tubing with Primochill Advanced LRT UV yellow. Later I will expand this with 780 Classified block and 240 rad (Alphacool UT60 or Monsta). Classy consumes insane amounts of power once properly overvolted so this loop needs to be adequate.

check AeroCool Touch 2100, controls 5 FAN at 25W with 5 Temp sensor.
