post #63401 of 106449
I use the Akasa 5-way splitter but it really only works on a CPU_OPT header. I use one of the 6 PWM fans in the CPU_FAN header to be able to adjust the PWM control properly.

I'm hoping I can still use it easily enough when I get myself an Aquero!

I have 10 Phanteks fans but they aren't PWM. Can I use something like an aquaero 6 or swiftech pwm splitter to control them via voltage?

The CPU_OPT header is just a mirror of the CPU_FAN header though, so that's why you can't control off it.

You can use the Aquaero 6 for sure, all its channels provide PWM as well as voltage control. The splitter needs to be a 3 pin fan splitter though.

Well, if it was me I'd just make the splitter(s) myself. That way the lengths of the leads would be exactly what I needed (no excess cabling cluttering up my rig) and I could make the sleeving match everything else. It can be very time consuming, but not terribly hard to do. You would need to have the terminals, connectors, wire, stripper, crimper, heatshrink, sleeve, .... sooo there's that.

Monsoon Free Center 3/8 x 5/8 Matte Black


Like I said, I have these just for temporary use. I have Primochill Rigid Revolvers for what will be my finished loop if/when I ever get around to putting on the mobo blocks and finishing bending the acrylic for it. Working six 12hr shifts a week since December (+ almost 1hr drive there & back) doesn't really leave me much time to do much of anything these days.

 

Yeah, def looks like you got the anti-microbial silver barbs to me.

 

I bought my 3/8 x 5/8 Monsoon's for temporary use just like you did while i was working on my build. I intended to get the conversion kits when my casemod was finished. Then they released the Hardlines with no options for people that don't want an extra metal in their loop. Now they've done the same with the regular fittings as well :doh:

I know of this,but it's not available in australia....

If Corsair SP120, get an Akasa 5-way PWM splitter or use 4 fans per Swiftech splitter when using motherboard headers. A stronger controller such as the Aquaero 6 can control 6 SP120s per channel at the moment though Darlene (IT Diva) is testing out somethings that may change that.
Would be using these fans http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=23071 ,i would love to get it in aus,because shipping just the splitter wouldn't be worth the cost from overseas....

USPS First Class International (15-30 days) $7.99
USPS Priority Mail International $34.75
USPS Express Mail International $40.68

and the splitter would be just $10.50....

 

The SP120 issue is Corsair-Specific. So as long as you're not using Corsair PWM's, any other PWM fans should all work consistently the same. The only "Proper" PWM splitters that i know about are the Swiftech PWM PCB Splitter and Akasa PWM Wire Harnesses.

 

There's also the new ModMyToys PWM Splitter PCB's. I grabbed a cpl to play around with, and they don't separate the RPM signals. So you'd have to mod it to only output the RPM signal from one of the fans. Either by modding the headers, modding the cables, or cutting/drilling the PCB traces. I'm probly just gonna drill out the PCB traces on mine if i decide to use em. RPM reporting from more than one fan is useless on a fan splitter, so no problem just slicing connection right off the PCB Traces.

It works on the CPU_OPT header but not the CPU_FAN header? That doesn't make much sense. Usually the CPU_FAN is the only header that's guaranteed to actually have PWM functionality. Maybe it's a BIOS setting you overlooked?

 

The Akasa splitter should work just fine for you on the Aquaero. The only issue's on the Aquaero's PWM seem to be with SP120's and PWM D5's. IT DIVA made a solution for the D5's, and she's working on one for the SP120's. I'm sure she'll figure it out. She ALWAYS does lol.

You can't use a PWM splitter for Voltage Control without modding it to the point that you should just make the splitter yourself. If you get a ModMyToys 3Pin splitter and remove the RPM wires from all the fans except one, it'll work perfectly.

Well I believe since the fans are powered by the MOLEX on the 5-way splitter the CPU_FAN header gets confused. I couldn't get it to work because it didn't recognize that anything was plugged in to it. Once I hooked one of the fans up directly to the motherboard and had the mirror header (CPU_OPT) hooked up to the 5-way it was right as rain. I have no technical explanation for it other than that one way worked and the other way didn't. biggrin.gif

Lol. Well at least you got it sorted :p

 

Sounds like maybe the problem's with your motherboards fan control. Don't worry about using the splitter on the Aquaero. You won't have problems :thumb:

Now with the Aquero, I was planning on getting the 5 LT. But I might regret not having the screen and remote and all the other goodies. So I'm a little hesitant, if I get the AQ5PRO then I have the thought in the back of my mind "man $40 more and you coulda gotten the AQ6PRO." I'm mostly looking forward to the software control of these AQ devices. But the screen looks sooo nice! What do you guys think? How long do you reckon one of these guys will last? What's the warranty service like with AquaComputer?
post #63409 of 106449
I have barely used the screen or looked at it since I installed Aquasuite to be honest, the software does everything for me.
post #63410 of 106449
You could always strip the bases of the silver plated Monsoon fittings. I was going to strip them but decided to use an anti corrosive (X1) instead.
