The aquaero at PPCs has the upgraded black face plate... performance wise they are identical.

I use octos for my builds. They have 8 fan ports with a curve controller for each port, RGBpx support (aquaero does not), and flow sensor/temp sensor inputs. One of the things that used to draw me to the aquaero was virtual temp sensors, but this can be done more powerfully in the aquasuite Playground now.

The octo only controls PWM fans, with a maximum current per port is 2 amps, and a maximum of 8 amps for all 8 ports combined.

pipes I have not seen if in the video he tries to slow down the fans by decreasing the output current ... because the problem of how many fans are used is not to keep them at maximum speed but to keep them at minimum, where the mosfet heats up more

I dont believe so, what I would recommend doing is going with the cheaper one and using the money saved for the heatsink. These things get hot if you have the channels filled up, just an FYI.

I think 2k ones were fine but just an issue to be aware of. Not sure what batches had that issue but I think it's been fixed.



16 of the NFA12's have a pull up speed of about 28w and slow down to around 21w or so at full speed, no issues on a Quadro so the Octo should be the same.

Judging by the Octo’s specs I shouldn’t have any issues plugging in 6 Noctua 2k rpm fans per fan port. My goal is to run a total of 33 fans across 6-7 of the Octo’s fan ports, with the most being 6 fans per port, and the least being 1. Specs on the Octo is up to 25w per port and 100w total across all 8 ports.

i went through three of them. it couldn't handle one fan per port. one had just one 80cm 3pin fan salvaged from the early 2000s. finger chopper at full speed. ive since removed that one. the other died from some noctua fans.

i currently use the commander pro to drive a fan hub. that seems to work out on the 'main' pc. guess ill wait for the octo to go back in stock when a certain retailer runs its discount code.
