D5 pump tach lead

Tuesday, June 24th 2014, 9:43pm

I have a simple question I have a alphacool D5 pump that has a single wire in a 3 pin fan header connector where do I hook this up to on the aquaero 6 so I can see the rpm in the software and can I set the input to shut down the computer if the rpm signal goes to zero?

Using one of these Cables should do the trick :) ... Some use the motherboard CPU fan header (using the AQ 5) & then set the bios for a shut on low rpm's, But now the AQ 6 has much better power outage this I guess would be the easiest route to use now...

One way is to just plug that single RPM wire into any available fan header on the Aquaero. That will give you the RPM's and you can set a fan RPM alarm for that header that will first warn if no RPMs are detected for several seconds and then shut down the computer by simulating a button press of a keyboard power button. The PC needs to be set to shut down on that button press rather than hibernate or sleep though.
