You will still need a powered splitter though - as, just one PWM channel on Aquaero 5.
So power load won't be an issue for the seven fans because splitter will take power from PSU
I have run 6 Vardar 120mm off Aquaero PWM channel no worries.
Maybe someone else has hooked up more than 6 and can advise if still getting the full PWM range.

140mm Vardars not released yet, so any info will be 120mm at this stage thumb.gif

Would you suggest the aquero 5LT? I just want something in my price range to control 7 simple fans. Lol

Obviously the Aquaero 6 is the best option - until we see some more info on the yet to be officially announced EK controller - hint hint tongue.gif
The Aquaero 6 offers way more future proofing than the 5LT as all channels being PWM capable and has higher amps capacity per channel for voltage controlling fans while also running cooler.
BUT I have seen you other posts about pricing restraints...
so,
Yes I would highly recommend the 5LT
I have 2 of them, plus an Aquaero 4, 1 x 5 Pro, 2 x 5XT and 1 x 6XT.
They really have been the go to controller for years thumb.gif

Yeah I saw that EK has that fan controller in the works. If not, I may pick up the aquaero 6 if I have the funds. I may even just run the Vardars via voltage if it's this much of a hassle. I still have a few months before my actual case arrives, so I can do some more research. Money is a huge issue because I'm taking a loaded semester this fall and its the last pre-reqs for the program I'm going to be applying to. I'm quiting work for a few semesters, so the Aquaero 6 may be a no go.

For the price, it's hard to go past the 5lt plus heatsink which really should be standard. It'll run a pwm pump and 7 fans no sweat.
Edit: forgot you were talking about pwm vardar fans. Not so good fit that unless you can dedicate the pwm channel to the fans. If the new EK controller turns out to be any good while undercutting the Aq6 by enough i would not be surprised to see a 6lt be eventually released.

Hey Jak thumb.gif
He seems happy enough to control the pumps from his only mobo PWM header...
and so I thought was wanting the best option to control only the PWM fans - which I think is still what he wants.
Good point about the heat-sink wink.gif

Yeah i wasn't following closely enough and just confused the situation. If the different sizes Vardars are the sameish speeds it should work well enough on the single channel. Happily that makes the heatsink not really needed even without a powered fan supplier as it shouldn't get warm running at 12v.

Also, i have some of the 120er here so i will see how they go with being split on a channel. Maybe see how they go being voltage reduced too but i saw that others say they produced noise which would concern me.

Sweet - lack of PWM controllers makes the Aquaero the sensible option - even if overkill for some situations.
Nice on the er's.
My PLE order with the Furious Vardars was back-ordered...
BUT just got confirmation that a courier will be delivering today biggrin.gif
post #11529 of 20434
Yeah, so I was going to control my D5 PWM pumps via my CPU header on my VI Hero. I went with the PWM versions because the res/pump combo is SO long, there won't be enough space for me to control the vario setting. I may just control the Vardars via voltage

Wow, i always forget what a difference fan splitting can make. With the Vardar F4 120ER I'm getting 200rpm at 35℅ pwm.

Gotta find my multimeter to see if it's voltage drop on the pwm that is causing it.

Volt controlling a large number of these isn't going to work well. At much under 7v they stop.
