Thanks! =)

Edit: Should I opt for the USB version instead? What would be the main benefits, not much of a price difference

NE0XY It's been a couple of years since I added an Aquaero 6XT to my system, and haven't really changed anything connected to it, just the gpu, cpu changes etc, which doesn't really affect the Aquaero so I've kinda forgotten about what works etc, anyway: I'm going to be doing a pretty big rebuild soon and I thought this would be a good time to get rid of my current not-so-good flow meter and get an Aquacomputer one, which would work great with the Aquaero, I just want to quickly make sure that they are actually compatible:
TLDR: Is this flow indicator compatible with the Aquaero 6XT? And is there anything else I should consider?

You can do it all in the Playground, if you know the formulas.

You need RAD IN, RAD OUT, Flow Senzor values as inputs. You also need Water Thermal Capacity as constant and seconds per hour or seconds per minute as another constant, depending on how your flow meter is set up. Mine is set up in liters per hour, so I use seconds per hour as constant.

1. Go to Playground in Aquasuite.
2. Add two Inputs, for RAD in and RAD out.
3. Add a calculation (X=A-B), use RAD IN as first input, RAD out as 2nd input.
4. Add a constant called "Water Thermal Capacity", enter its value as 4187.
5. Add a calculation (X=A*B), use result from step 3 as one input and step 4 as the 2nd input.
6. Add another input (Flow Sensor value).
7. Add a calculation (X=A*B), use result from step 5 as one input and result from step 6 as the other input.
8. Add a constant (either seconds per hour with value 3600 or seconds per minute with value 60 - depends on how your flow sensor value is shown, in L/min or L/h).
9. Add a calculation (X=A/B), use results from Step 7 as first input and step 8 as the 2nd input.
10. Link the result from step 9 to the OUT in the Playground.

Congratulations, you now have a Power Dissipation virtual sensor!

Caveat: Step 4 value assumes 1L of liquid is equal in mass to 1 Kg of water, and that the cooling liquid has the same heat dissipation value as water. If you know the exact values for your liquid (density, heat dissipation characteristics), you could alter values at step 4 and add a density multiplier in the formula steps. Hit me up if you do want that.

As Shawnb said, you can ignore it, but if you want to remove the amber error status, just set the 'Output power' to zero.

Because Output Power is set to 100%, so it's expecting the fan to report RPM speed; just set it to zero and should go away.

Then you can safely ignore it. The software doesn’t like when the headers are unused as it sees it as an RPM issue so it flags a warning just in case you did have something plugged in.
