I hope nobody at Aquacomputer minds, here is their brief statement they posted in the other forums:

[quote=AquacomputerAfter 7 years of producing the aquaero 4 we are proud to present the next generation controlling-device: The aquaero 5.
The aquaero 4 achieved a very good reputation in the last years as fan controller and monitoring device. Despite the aquaero 4 had nearly no opponent we decided 2 1/2 years ago to design the next generation: The aquaero 5.

Much the same as due the development of the aquaero 4 we tried to combine the latest technology with our best ideas with the aim to produce the best product. One of our main aims was the development of a rock stable product with an innovative graphical user interface and a incredible number of product features. The complete development has been done at Aqua Computer without external companies involved. It took us many thousands of working hours to create this excellent product.

Due the development we also took care of the raising multimedia-PC and HTPC market. So the aquaero 5 is now able to connect also as an IR-mouse and a keyboard. With the aquaremote, an IR-remote, you can control the complete PC through the aquaero 5. Also the aquaero is able to wake up your PC from standby. Certainly the complete aquaero menu and settings can be setup by the aquaremote.
With the optional IR-booster, a IR transmitter, you can control other IR-devices with your aquaero.

The power performance of the fan amps has been increased and we have added safety features to the amps. Now the aquaero 5 provides current measuring, temperature control and shortage detection and a programmable fuse for each fan amp. With a adequate heat sink you can control Laing pumps directly with the aquaero. We also provide a waterblock for the aquaero 5 fan amp, which will provide maximum performance for your aquaero.

Aquabus connected devices have been shown as periphery at the aquaero 4 menu. At the aquaero 5 they are now completely integrated and fully usable like internal components. You can use up to 40 sensors and 10 fan channels.
We have also added a complete new controller-system to control the output of the fans.

The new aquaero 5 display is one of the biggest advancements. Compared to the old 2x20 character display the new 256x64 pixel graphic display provides much more information. The aquaero display is also able to show external supplied Data and a driver for LCD-Hype is already written. The refresh-rate is so high, that you can theoretical watch videos on the aquaero display.

We have spend a lot of care with the improvement of the user interface. We are now using capacitive touch-keys at the aquaero XT and you we have integrated 4 free definable softkeys at the aquaero XT.

Today we are introducing the aquaero 5 to the market, but we will expand the function range in the next years. This was just a short abstract about the new functions. For detailed information please read our PDF.
http://forum.aquacomputer.de/images-...aero_5_eng.pdf

I forgot something.... the prices.
We have tried to keep the prices as low as possible. The aquaero 5 LT starts at 59.90€ (30€ less than before!) and the PRO follows with 119.90€. The top-modell, the XT, will be available for 159.90€ including remote and heat-sink.
The IR-remote aquaremote will be available for 14.90€ including batteries and the waterblock for 19.90€. Optional black frontplates costs 9.90€ and the air-heatsink 8.90€.

It's fine, I'll leave it up since news will push that one down faster than this one would, so discussion can continue here.

Price is a bit steep, but I guess that is expected.

Well, if you're looking at the XT, then yes.

For what they can do, the lower models are very cheap.

It's great and I'm definitely getting one. However one little thing that annoys me are the fan headers. Even if they have loads of capacity, there are only four there, which means tha tI will have to use loads of Y cables to power 16 fans. They say get a poweradjust - but that only has a single fan header.

Actually it has 2 more PWM 12v channels which can handle 12 watts each; I'm not sure how you connect fans to them, though.

Also, the Poweradjust is designed to control a single pump, not fans, that's why it only has one. If you want to control that many fans from as many channels, get a Multiswitch and run an Aquabus connection to the Aquaero so you can control them from the Aquaero. wink.gif
