Welcome to the Aquaero Owners Club thread

This is the new thread for all things Aquaero and Aquaero / Aquasuite related.

The original Aquaero 6 thread was started as a new hardware thread for the then coming release of the Aquaero 6.

The A6 is here and in short order has grown quite a following.

The older 5 series is also holding its own for those who don't need the greater current capability or additional 3 channels of PWM the 6 series has to offer.

Here's the original promo pictures and the YouTube video promoting the "New Aquaero 6"

All the fans and the D5 in the video are voltage controlled to show off the new A6's impressive 2.5A per channel capability without an additional heatsink.





It wasn't long after the A6 became available, AC released this passive heatsink for it:

Shown here with the 5 series water block attached, it also fits the 5 series finned passive heatsink:


I'll be updating as I get the chance, and trying to move over some of my A6 mods posts from the original thread.

Once we have a large enough base, we can become "Official" OCN Aquaero Owners Club.

Let's see some Aquaero pics and some spirited discussions.

As you guys run across posts and get feedback on which PWM fans work in large numbers with the A6, please post it so I can update the Known Issues and Compatibility section in the 1st post.

@ Shoggy, can you post the preferred link to the latest Aquasuite firmware edition so I can add it to the 1st post, Thanks in advance,

@ Everyone, if you know or have a link to Aquasuite tutorials or guides, please post them and I'll put them in a section in the 1st post.

Thanks in advance, together we make this club rock . . . .

We do not sell these boards separately! This guy only got a new controller board since we were under the (wrong) impression he wanted to repair his USB version of the pump and not modding another normal pump with it.

LOLLLL. It's funny, i was actually gonna put (Sorry Shoggy) in parenthesis next to that one

I know you don't sell the PCB's, but it doesn't necessarily mean people can't do the mod if they have an extra one. If you want me to edit that link out of the post, let me know
:p


Edit: For instance, for somebody that already owns a D5 Vario, but want the Aquabus control. They could just spend 50 bux instead of the extra 140 for a new pump



Still gives business to Aquacomputer and might save some1 money....
