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.

I actually have one of those too and ive used it before, just not with my Aquaero.

But I want to have control over my fans as they have a pretty large spectrum of noise and performance. If I cant control them then its a no-go for me.

I dont understand why im suddenly having this problem, this never was a problem in the past. I have 9 fans and I use 3 per channel through a triple splitter. It seems to be the certain 3 fans in specific because i changed channels and the same fans still dont work

EDIT: Actually now I forget that im purchasing a new power supply, as mine currently is not enough power. I had to disable my SLI because my 2nd GPU wasnt recieving enough power. However according to GPU-Z its still recieving some from the PSU still

hmmm, after researching a little bit, I think its worth mentioning that im using Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12. Some people seem to be reporting problems of a very similar nature to that of mine.... And this problem began when I recently changed fans....

Wow, and these were really expensive.

Are those fans in push or pull? Are they used directly in contact with the rad? Some people report the Nb eloop hit the rad in pull and this might be physically hindering the fans to spin? A quick solve would be to use a shroud or rubber pads or something to decouple a little bit he fans.

I still used the rubber inserts on both sides of the fans, but aside from those, they are directly mounted. The top ones however, are not. They are mounted on drop-in rad plate.

I have 6 in push and pull on my Airplex, mounted on the ceiling of my case. The ones on top have always worked fine, but the ones on the bottom have been sporadic. Sometimes 1-2 will suddenly stop spinning, or even just spin at a lower RPM than the others, and such. But once I hit a certain voltage on the top fans, the bottom ones instantly start spinning. Im not sure if its because of the air flow of the upper fans, but it seems rather quick and aggressive in their speed up to be from the above air flow.'

Im considering just removing the bottom 3 fans, and replacing them with the BlackSilentPro 1400rpm fans. and then using those 3 Eloops for the front and back intakes of my case, as I dont have any right now.

mmm.. Did you test them individually to see how they behave? Plug just one of the bottom ones to the Aq channel and see how it goes.

Are you sure you are not getting the over current warning?

yes im sure, it only 3 fans, and besides, im using the exact same 3 fans in the next channel and its fine.

Perhaps ill try each fan individually, but its gonna be a pain to get to plug each one after doing all my cable management.

I have been wanting new fans for a little while anyway. Im going to buy 3 today

i just bought and received one more 6xt for my s3 !

will be moving the screen farther from the pcb
should do a build log soon ( almost finished, all i need is the custom res and then to pipe it )

This ought to be interesting. I believe it was tried already in this thread without any success.

edit: Looks like it was @kpoeticg that gave it a go, but iirc was unable to pull it off. Here's one post discussing it with shoggy...

That does not really work since even a short cable can already bring up so much communication errors on the line that the display will not work any more. In the airplex GIGANT we also have to split the display and main controller and only use a shielded cable with about 20 cm. I have no idea which length you need but every centimeter in addition will raise the risk that it does not work anymore.

After reading this forum for so many time, I'm "new" here.

But I had same issues with this:

In the official page of NB eLoops, their FAQs say that those fans are not the ones to be used in pull configurations because they make a loud noise. You need to use a shroud if you want to use them in pull.

Nothing to do with using them with Aquaero or other rehobus, just aerodinamics. I suposse that incorrect air flow through the fans makes them more difficult to be controled. I solved that using NB eLoops for push and NB Multiframe for pull, and both are working fine in my AQ6.
