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

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.

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