Those are some seriously high scores you have there, across a comprehensive suite of benchmarks and at enviably low temperatures too! Your testing has been very diligent throughout, my compliments on that. A truly impressive machine on the numbers alone, before we even consider the aesthetics – good looks and quick thinking, we should all be so lucky!



I hope you’re very proud of Devastator, you should be (and perhaps less obsessively self-critical of your work than a certain someone was of his.) Looking forward to the final glamour pictures!

Aquaero & Aquasuite Software Setup Guide

The Aquaero fan controllers are in my opinion the very best at controlling and monitoring your fans, pumps, and other accessories related to water or even air cooled PCs. The accompanying Aquasuite software is truly incredible and very powerful software! However, it can be a little intimidating if you have never used it before, and there is definitely a learning curve involved.

The official documentation is not updated very often. Here’s a link to the most recent version from Aqua Compter, as of this writing it was last updated in November of 2016! https://aquacomputer.de/tl_files/aqu...ero_5_6_en.pdf

I actually got started with my Aquaero by reading a guide written by Namron, a member here on OCN. He passed away several years ago, and all of the links to his guide are broken or missing. It was getting rather dated at this point, and was based on the Aquaero 5. I was originally making this guide for my build log The Big Red "Devastator", but I thought more people would be able to find it if I made a separate thread. So I'm posting it in it's own thread, and on my build log.

There is an OCN Aquaero Owners Club if you haven't already seen it. None of the links on the OP work anymore, and if I posted it there it would just get lost.

It is not always easy to visualize what to do by merely reading instructions. So my goal here is to use many screen shots, and walk you through how I set up my two Aquaeros and the Aquasuite software on this particular build.

The Aquasuite software can be used in a fairly simple setup, all the way to very complex builds. I’ve been using Aquasuite for over six years now, but I still do not use all the aspects of the software, so I will not be to covering those areas that I don’t use myself.

The beautiful thing about Aquasuite is that once you have it all setup, you can have it set to start with Windows, it runs in the background monitoring, and controlling everything you have it set up to do automatically.

Here is a look at the back just after installing these, the Aquaero XT is on the bottom, with the Aquaero LT slave unit on top. The only connections I use are the Power, USB 5 pin, I have four temp sensors plugged in, all four fan channels, the Aquabus high, and the RPM. The RPM header sends a fake RPM signal to the motherboard CPU fan header.




Aqua Computer has several new products that I will not be covering:

D5 Next Pump

Quadro Fan Controller

RGBpx Splitty4

Farbwerk 360


Here is a list of Aqua Computer components used in this Aquaero & Aquasuite setup:

Aquaero 6 XT

Aquaero 6 LT

Farbwerk USB - Bluetooth

Flow Sensor High Flow USB

2x Aquacomputer D5 Pump with Aquabus Interface (41093) discontinued

Aqualis XT 880 ml Reservoir with fill level sensor

6x Splitty9 fan splitters

Hubby7 internal USB hub

Due to the size of this guide, and because there are over 65 images I am using spoilers to put most of it in sections. This way you don’t have to scroll quite so much

Well that’s all folks! This ended up being way more work than I set out to do. Hopefully this will help some people out with their Aquaero and Aquasuite setups.

If you have anything to add to this feel free to post it below. I might add to this guide at a later time. An “Alarm Addendum” could be in order

Yes nothing like doing some diligent testing, and I must say that I'm quite happy with the performance of this rig




I thought I had figured out a way to remove the thumbnails at the bottom of each post, while keeping the large pictures in the correct placement in the posts. It actually worked for a few days, then most but not all of the images were just gone.

I had to go back into my last post "Aquaero and Aqausuite Sotfware Setup Guide", and put all the pictures back in. So if you did not see the images before, it should work ok now.

The Final Drain and Fill with Aqua Computer DP Ultra Red Coolant


Here's how much coolant I used out of two 5 Liter jugs.



In this video of the filing process, the first time I start the pumps showing you the back side. After filling the reservoirs a second time, I turned the case around to show the coolant filling from the main side. After the third time filling the reservoirs I can just leave it running even though the reservoirs are not completely full.

Really awesome build man! I really appreciate the aquasuite guide. I've had my aquaero 6 XT for quiet some time now and I knew it came with a ton of options but it's so overwhelming because you don't know where to start. U set up some basics and that's it.

With your guide and all the pictures u use, it's fairly simple to set up and easy to follow! Huge thanks for that and congrats on the awesome build!

Hey ruffhi, yeah that video is only the first three minutes or so, and has a big air pocket in the HDD blocks to start with. It gets much smaller fairly quickly then the last little bit takes a few days to purge out. The first time I filled and drained the system I was having a hard time getting all the air out of it, and finally I just decided that that would be my "flow indicator" as it's easy to see the water flowing when there is some air in there.

Then a few days later it was all gone by itself. As you know I have filled and drained this thing multiple times by now, the air actually will all bleed out by itself without tilting the case it just takes longer. If I lift each end up a few times it bleeds most of the air out. Of course I can't lift it very much because it's so dang heavy

Thank you and glad you enjoyed the Aquaero Guide

It certainly can be overwhelming when you're first getting started, but it is really is an amazing controller and software package once you're up and running.




Update:
The build in now completely finished. I spent portions of all three days over memorial day weekend taking literally hundreds and hundreds of pictures of it. Some in bright sun light, some under overcast skies, and night pictures with various different lighting schemes.

I purchased and installed Adobe Elements & Premiere 2019 software onto the "Devastator" since my previous version was from 2013 I was out of town the first weekend in June, so last weekend I brought a good monitor down to my work shop, so I could sort through, and edit the final build pictures. Of course it was the first real hot weekend of the year, and it was 34° C in there... the video cards even though they weren't under heavy load were cruising at 37° C!

I had so many pictures I was trying to get it down to a manageable number, and when I finally stopped to see how many pictures where in that folder, it ended up being exactly 100 pictures! I've got some great pictures, but now that a few weeks have passed, all the tiny air bubbles in the reservoirs are now all gone, so I decided to take some more pictures because it really looks much better without all the air bubbles.

This morning there was great conditions with overcast skies, so I took a bunch of more shots that I now need to edit. I really want to be sure I've got all the pictures I want because once I move this behemoth build upstairs into my office, there's no moving it back outside for more pictures!

So very soon I'll be posting up the final pictures

Final Pictures – Top 50 Outside Daytime Shots

Due to the large amount of pictures I have to share with you here, I am going to break down the final pictures into two posts. This first post is all outside shots taken under both sunny skies, and overcast skies.

Some of these pictures were taken shortly after filling and purging the system with the Aqua Computer DP Ultra Red coolant, and there are still air bubbles inside the reservoirs. The pictures without any air bubbles in the reservoirs were taken several weeks later.

Keep in mind that I’m just an amateur photographer. I don’t have any fancy lighting equipment or backgrounds. I have an entry level Nikon D3300 DSLR camera. I used the 18-55mm lens that came with it for the indoor nighttime shots, and the only extra lens I have purchased, an AF-S Nikkor 35mm F/1.8G that I used for the outside daytime shots.

Most of the pictures I have posted throughout this build log have had little to no editing done to them. I just take a lot of shots and then show the best ones. All of these final pictures have been cropped, and edited to the best of my abilities, so I hope you enjoy them!

I feel like there should be a drum roll or a band playing

Let’s get started by looking at the build without any of the outer panels on, and out in the bright morning sunlight.



























This is with the front panel installed.








Now the top panel is installed.


















With the doors on it is extremely hard to get good photos due to the tempered glass windows reflecting like a mirror. This first shot I actually tried to get the reflection, you can see the trees, blues skies, and clouds behind me.




This is my ghetto setup to keep the reflections from the tempered glass windows down to a minimum. A black table cloth clamped to a five foot ladder and my tripod. I moved this around in front of wherever the reflection came from, and it actually worked fairly well.




All the motherboard lights are set to red, and the two RGB strip headers are set to white for the video card waterblocks, and the Intel 900P waterblock. The RAM is also set to be all white here.










This is the same lighting scheme except with the RAM changed to all red.







Love the “Devastator” logo lit up on the Aquaero display!






Now for the back side








Here’s a few more shots with the door off on the main side.






This is under overcast skies and normally I would not be able to shoot from this direction because the sun is off to my left front at this time of day. My rose garden provides a nice background… another one of my time consuming hobbies!

Final Pictures – Top 50 Nighttime Shots

The rest of these pictures are taken in the dark with various different lighting effects. The Aquasuite software and the Farbwerk controls the four RGB strips that serve as case lighting. Mostly these case lighting strips are just set to all white, there are a few shots here with the case lights turned off, or set to red.

The Asus Aura software controls the lighting of the motherboard, the RAM sticks, and the two RGB strip headers. One of the RGB strip headers controls the strips in both video cards, and the second RGB header controls the strip in the Intel 900P water block.

To start with I have the Aura software set so that everything, motherboard, RAM and RGB strips are all red.




















This is with the case lighting off. Now you are just seeing the motherboard, RAM, RGB strips in the waterblocks, and the always white LEDs in the reservoir, the CPU waterblock, and the two hard drive waterblocks.






This is the back side with the case lighting off. Pretty dark here, just the white LEDs in the reservoir, and pump top can be seen.




Now the case lighting is turned to red. It’s just all washed out in red, so I won’t ever be using this particular lighting scheme.






Here’s the back side with the case lighting all white again.


















Various close-ups










One thing I really like about having the RGB strips in the waterblocks set to white is that it shows the red coolant inside the waterblocks.


















The reflection off of the chrome plated backplates is like a mirror
























This is one of my two favorite lighting schemes. Case lighting all white, then in the Asus Aura software I left the motherboard and RAM all set to red, and just turned the two RGB strips to white.












I’ll bet some of you thought I might not ever finish this project. It did take a long time, but I must say that this is one of the most fun projects I’ve ever done in my life, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process!

Whether you are a regular poster here, or have never left a comment on this build log, I would love to hear from you. In just a few sentences please let me know what was the one or two things in this build log that you enjoyed the most, or which is your favorite picture here.
