Out of curiosity what can the 'extra two PWM channels' be used for if not for fans?

I've got two Monsoon LED plugs connected to mine. I set them to get brighter when the coolant is hotter.

I've shaken the case like you would shake a shake weight biggrin.gif but still the same issue. I have a 750D and I attached the whole combo to the drive cage with the brackets of the res and between the res and pump top I have 2 fittings (normal and male to male connector).

Anything like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LjqCoVbZ_g

I was thinking of painting my rads a flat gray color. Does anyone know where I can find those plastic G1/4 plugs that some manufacturers send with their rads? I want to protect the threads and inside of the rad, but at $4/ea I don't want my BP plugs to get paint on them.

Even if they're metal, plastic, or rubber. Just as cheap as possible.

could just wadd up some paper towel ?

paper towel wrapped in plastic grocery store bag would work fine.

That's the thing with future proofing technology. Lets say you spend $50 extra for the AQ6 hoping to future proof. In 2 years with the mass production of color displays driving down production costs AQ releases a full color version. Now you didn't so much future proof if in your next upgrade cycle you decide you want that color display.

I resolve my tech purchase decisions firstly by what I need and secondly by what makes me happy. It's only $50... and if your gut says you want the AQ6, then that's more than enough reason to justify the purchase. But future proofing with regards to technology is a slippery slope. It is a valid justification for a lot of people and I'm generalizing here which I typically hate... but you're on OCN, we like the cool new toys here. If you were being practical in your purchases an $80 fan controller wouldn't even be on the table let alone a $150-$220 dollar one.

Basically, you can't go wrong with either of the choices. I'm just pointing out all you need is the AQ5 (unless you're driving 15-20+ fans or more than 1 pwm channel) and for the price it works great.. but by no means is the AQ6 a bad purchase.

I would think you could simply swap out the displays, if the connectivity is the same. wink.gif

Future proof is a dirty word around these here parts.

That would work I suppose.

Well it would actually be between the screen less 5LT ($75) and 6PRO ($200). So it's a pretty big jump. I'll have to think about it, I don't have the money for either of them anyway. I did just order the Poweradjust 2, so I'll play with that and see how I like Aquasuite.

I'm no expert and could be wrong but I believe changing from monochrome to full color would require some changes in the logic that drives the display. If this is on a PCB sandwiched with the display then you'd be right... if it's on a chip located on the main PCB with all the fan headers then no, this would not work.
