The pullup mod is easy enough with some basic tools TBH, basic skills like soldiering is not hard to learn as well.

Maybe if there's enough of you guys that need these, you could persuade Swiftech to make them available . . . it would certainly help them sell more pumps as well, so it should be a win / win for everyone.

For them, they'd have the economy of scale, in place production facilities, and so on . . .

For me, I'd have to order wire, a number of components, pay the Priority Mail shipping, make each one individually, and then package it and ship it out Priority Mail,

There'd be about $15 in postage, $5 in parts and wire, $10 labor at min wage, per unit . . . .

If I made them here, I'd have to sell what should be a $5 to $8 cable for $35+, just to break even . . . and I didn't figure in time and gas to pick up stuff at the post office or drop it off to ship it out. . . . . not to mention sleeving . . . .

You can see why we don't have much manufacturing in the Virgin Islands, well except for Rum.


Darlene


Edit to add . . .

If I do pictorial step by step . . . . do you think it would help . . .

I can give a parts list for Jameco Electronics that sells in smaller quantities to hobbyists for wire and components.

I'll have to check if they have the connector pins and shells . . . . would be nice to source everything from one supplier . . . maybe I'll have to check Digikey.

Maybe you guys in major cities like Houston, with electronics schools like ITT, could approach the school and get a skilled student to make a bunch of these things up affordably?
not to mention i dont believe min wage is a fair wage to pay for this i think you did alot already by making the list for the mod, but i am extremely grateful for it !

iirc, there is a much more detailed post somewhere in this thread not terribly far back about which resistors to use , how to connect everything and some photos of the cable. I would look it up and post a link but I'm about to tear down my rig. She did make it sound doable to me and I'm a dummy for sure upsidedwnsmiley.gif

I think it was this link?

Check Darlene's post for details of the mod

Guys really. I don't have RadioShack here. I'm foreigner in Thailand. I don't read or speak Thai. But even I found how to get this items here by ordering per internet.


ITEM NAME ITEM DESCRIPTION QUANTITY PRICE AMOUNT
R560R12W 560ohm 1/2W 5% Carbon Film Resistor (pack of 10 pcs.) 4.80 Bht 4.80
R0033K14W 3.3kohm 1/4W 5% Carbon Film Resistor (pack of 10 pcs.) 3.20 Bht 3.20
BZX79-C5V1 BZX79 5.1V 500mW Zener Diodes 1.60 Bht 4.80
Subtotal: 12.80
Thai Post: 100.00
Total price: Bht. 112.80

Delivery 10 times more expensive then material. smile.gif

1 dollar is around 33 Baht.

I understand why Darlene don't want to do this wires and sell them. Because you can't for sail 25 cent item for 5 dollars, with 50 dollars delivery costs and make everyone happy.

Best Regards

a dummie step by step sure would be appreciated by me. Darlene mentioned i need to get some pins along with the parts, even that i did not understand smile.gif i thought i could tell from the pic what goes in where and what to buy but the pins? So when some of us say dummies, we really means dummies smile.gif

What exactly you not understand?

Ok I will try to explain smile.gif

Normal fan connector is 3 pin. and PWM fan connector is 4 pin. Pin is an metal contact that is inside connector holes.

PIN FUNCTION COLOR
1 Ground Black
2 +12 V Yellow
3 Sense (tach.) Signal Green ( on 3 pin fan is Tachometric Signal Yellow)
4 Control (PWM) Blue



For one D5 you will need.

1 X 5.1V Zener diode,
1 X 1/2 W 560 Ohm Resistor (sometimes is called 1/2W 560E Resistor),
1 X 1/4W 3.3K (3300 Ohm) Resistor



Pin removal manual.

This photo shows how it works very clearly. The little blue arrow shows the "tang" or "barb" that holds the pin in place in the connector housing. You gently press down the tang with the end of a paperclip while simultaneously pulling on the wire and the wire will slide out. Do it gently so you don't crush the tang! When you push the pin back into the housing, the tang will pop into place and hold the wire in place, a lot like a fish hook.




Best Regards smile.gif

Hey guys

Im not sure whats wrong, but one of my channels wont seem to work. They only spin when I power up the above fans (they are radiator fans), and im not sure if this is simply because the upper fans are moving the lower ones through the pull of the air, or if theres a voltage issue...

I was intending on purchasing a few of these ModMyToys multi-fan PCB ports.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14661/ele-987/3-Pin_Power_Distribution_PCB_3xWay_Block_MMT-PCB-3WAY.html?tl=c121s424b214

That one has a male 3 pin power input, and I was curious if these would work on the Aquaero if I connect it with a female-to-female cable to 1 of the 4 channels??

If so, would it perhaps be better to purchase one of those that have the 4 pin male molex power input instead? and use a female molex to female 3 pin cable to connect to the aquaero?

thanks

Thank you Daniel!

I'm using 4 of these:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20885/bus-352/NZXT_GRID_10_Channel_Multi_Fan_Hub_AC-GRID-10-M1.html
2 of them with about 16 120mm fans on one channel.
2 of them with 8 140mm and 1-2 120mm fans each on a separate channel.
The AQ6 has no problem with that, although I got no RPM signal.
When I tried to connect the ones with the 140mm fans to the same channel I got the over current warning and the fans wouldn't spin.
Bottom line, shouln't be a problem running 3-4 fans per channel as far as I can tell.
My AQ is watercooled so the fan controllers are ~ 30c even when running the fans at much lower voltage.
