Aquacomputer & RGB...complete RGB noob needs advice... :0)

Yeah, no idea re. Capellix, I'm so new to RGB I'd not even heard of it. Also had no idea Corsair were in so much trouble with their software; although I've had problems with iCue and I barely need it to do anything. I just ended up uninstalling it. I've got a pretty old (at this point) Corsair AIO, cooling my CPU. It works well, and can't be heard above the fans in my case, but it's one of their older ones; it's discontinued now. Thanks for the info. re. Corsair; I'll definitely know to check th...

Aquacomputer & RGB...complete RGB noob needs advice... :0)

Quoted from "Remayz" I guess they did like corsair with their "capellix" LEDs, trying to launch another trend by giving as little information as possible on what it means :p The EK RGB straps are really helpful. It's really a crap connector that RGB thing, but they manage to keep them together.. I can't wait for the new maglev vardars with theeir beefy connectors to get rid of all that crap! lol This is the first time I've actually looked at RGB fans at all, because I have my go-to fans for pre...

Quoted from "Speedy-VI" Sounds like you have a plan. I don't know anything about the Cooler Master Halo fans but they look decent. I still don't know what they mean by "Gen2 LEDs". Maybe they upgraded to a brighter LED. Static Pressure is not great at 1.6mm H20 but sometimes you have to trade performance for bling. I am guilty of installing Corsair QL120 fans on my Fractal AIO radiator, and they have even worse static pressure than the Halo, or just about anything else. They have been described...

It provides SATA based power for the LEDs but there is no microcontroller on board, and hence no USB connection. Quot...

Does the RGBpx Splitty 12 Active support "Addressable Gen 2 RGB"? The reason I ask is, that I've had a bit of a setback: I Installed a Cooler Master Masterfan MF140 Halo, into my case, plugged it in to the ARGB header, but it just didn't work. I tried to enable it in my motherboard's RGB software but still nothing. I looked more closely at the fan's specs, and it seems it supports "Addressable Gen 2 RGB" I'm guessing this is the reason why it's not working with my motherboard? I'm going to try a...

Aquacomputer & RGB...complete RGB noob needs advice... :0)

Quoted from "Remayz" the splitty 12 is only a splitter, it has no electronics in it, it's not a controller. Its main purpose is to power the LEDs from SATA (direct from the power supply) and not from the controller. controllers have a maximum power rating per output. if you exceed it, it shuts down. the Splitty12 allows you to have each output powered by SATA, and the controller only sends RGB data to the LEDs, basically gettting rid of the power limit. you have data going from the Farbwerk360 ...

Quoted from "Remayz" they are just LEDs. what makes them dimmable is the controller. digital or analog, you can adjust brightness of course, with either farbwerk or farbwerk360. the diming issue is with house lights where each bulb has its own power supply built in, and you can't reduce brightness by reducing the voltage with a traditionnal dimmer, that will just give you a flashy light show at best. Here it's totally different. Thanks :0) That's good to know. :0) Do most RGB/ARGB software's/de...

Hi, sorry, I didn't mean to confuse you; I'm just new to this and unsure of the details. And yes, I was confused about the connector; sorry about that, I'd got it mixed up. I've reduced the number of fans I'm going to install to 6, so it works out just as expensive for me to buy digital Halos and have fans that can be configured more easily through standard means, as it would be for me to buy a Farbwerk and 6 non-digital Helos'.

Thanks for responding, I didn't realise it was so complicated. Also, I had no idea it was possible to control non-addressable RGB? Do you think the Farbwerk can control the LED's in the non-addressable Phanteks Helos? I only need them to display one colour; that's the only reason I was interested in the digital version of the Helos. Also, 12 of the RGB accessories I need to install have standard 3-pin fan connectors to power the LED's, so I've ordered an extra Splitty9 and am planning on pluggin...

Quoted from "Speedy-VI" I ran into an issue using a temp sensor not made by Aquacomputer. The problem was not the sensor, it was the 2-pin connector on it. I had a few old Corsair temp sensors that I wanted to use. I tried to connect one. It worked fine and gave me the same reading as the Aquacomputer temp sensor that came with my OCTO, but the 2-pin connector body is a bit thicker than the Aquacomputer #53026 temp sensor. The sensor inputs on the OCTO and QUADRO are very close together. I coul...

@Remayz & @InfoSeeker Thanks so much for responding, it's very appreciated... ...with regards the radiant heat from the rads, I'll probably just run one sensor out of the bottom of the case and have it hang off of the desk so that it takes readings from below the case. For the moment I'll probably use the sensor that comes with the Quadro I've ordered but I'm thinking I might swap in a two-pin Lamptron sensor because if it's going to be hanging out of the bottom of the case the Lampron sensor is...

Quoted from "Remayz" short answer : yes, you can do all that, average your 3 sensors, or take the highest divided by the square root of water flow over CPU frequency averaged.. and i'm not even joking, you can do that too you could create a sensor adding the 3 intake temps, dividing by 3 to get the average, add a low pass filter to smooth out fast temperature changes, and substract that to water temp to get a smooth delta T reading.

How many fans can I run off of one Quadro header?

Quoted from "Remayz" it's useful for a handful of fan models, like the old noctua industrial that added capacitance to the PWM wire when connected on splitters, that made them answer erratically because the signal was so messed up. some old EK Vardars also had a similar problem.

high flow NEXT - The next generation of flow sensors

Quoted from "Remayz" one of the two has the same connector as all those on the market. the one not in stock has the picoblade connector required for the high flow next. for the room temperature obviously you'll need another sensor going to the quadro, but you should receive one in the package you are not stuck using sensors only for one function.

Quoted from "Remayz" power dissipation is a virtual sensor that you make yourself. you can find the formula to calculate dissipated power for liquid cooling circuits and just adapt it (mostly converting units really and doing simple maths). we have flow in L/h, specific heat in joules per Kelvin per kilogram, temp delta in °C (one °C being equal to 1 kelvin, we leave it as is), and watts are joules per second.. so you have to convert all to SI units (flow from L.h to kg/s) then it's just a matt...

high flow NEXT - The next generation of flow sensors

Quoted from "Remayz" for fan control based on temperature delta you want it to be the delta between water and ambient temperature (so, add a sensor that you'll leave dangling off the case out of sight). That allows your fans to adapt their speed no matter what the temp is in your room. Having two inline sensors, and a flow sensor allows you to measure real dissipated power in your loop. that's not exactly useful but a fun reading to have the only catch is that you have to have your radiators in...

If not connected together, you just add the Next temperature to the Quadro software sensors, and control fan speeds based on this one. Connected together or not, it works the same in Aquasuite.
