post #63201 of 106724
So is there a fan controller that could easily control the voltage on a MOLEX powered device? For example, adjusting a MCP355 from 12v to 9v?


I'm having a hard time deciding what to upgrade first. Obviously I will need a CPU block, but TBH, this air cooler I'm using on the CPU does a stellar job. I really want a different pump, my MCP355 is by far the loudest thing in my case and the coolant is flowing WAY to fast through this loop. I can't use anything but pastel because water or X1 just turns to micro-bubbles. Then I will need another radiator, probably 360mm, and that means more fans which would require a decent fan controller because I plan on using all PWM fans.

So the want list is as follows:

Fan controller (really looking into the Aquero's)
Pump (MCP35X PWM or D5 Vario)
CPU Block
360mm RAD

And I can't afford to buy it all at once. Should I even bother trying to slow my MCP355 down a hair? Or is that a lost cause?

If you get any fan controller, you could make a 3-pin mini-molex (aka fan connector) to full size molex adapter for the pump to allow voltage control...... Just make sure that the controller can take the 1.5amp that the pump needs......

That's not a terrible idea, would I be able to operate it off of one of these guys?

Aquacomputer Poweradjust 2 USB
And possibly in conjunction with the: Aquacomputer aquaero 5 LT USB Fan-Controller

Now I gotta be honest, I read the details there on PPCs and IDK if I'm still a bit roasted from last night or if it's just really poorly written. wink.gif I'm still 100% unsure about what all the Poweradjust 2 is capable of. Actually I think they just used Google Translator on the AQUAComputer website, translated it from German to English and copy and pasted it, because it reads exactly the same. lol

Were would be the best places to put temp sensors on my Aquaero 5 LT USB Fan-Controller to get accurate temps and control?

Updated my rig a bit got an apogee drive 2 for $35 threw on a new pwm pump and lost the res. Was surprised how easy it was to fill and bleed.

I am getting Micro bubbles in my res, still. There is no leaks that I can find, and the system is 100% dead quiet at the pump and fans... I am not sure if one of the fittings could be pulling a little bit of air or something.

@stickg1 why not get a rheostat like the ones they used to sell at sidewinder?

How long ago did you fill the system? They can take a long time to work out, specially if you are using pure water (with anti corrosion/bacteria additives of course)

I'm thinking if I have to buy something that's $30-$50 just to control a MCP355 and get an independent fan controller as well, I would be much better off just getting a MCP35X PWM and a fan controller instead. So that's what I'll probably do.
