D5 Next

Friday, July 12th 2019, 12:39am

Hi All, hope everyone is well. Using my first every Aquacomputer product the D5 Next pump. I am a little struck. I have a 9 fan Splitty that I want to connect to the D5. Question is do I set the Splitty to aquabus mode or not? If I don't then I guess I connect the D5 to input on the Splitty and then the RPM connection on the SPLITTY to the motherboard?

Thank you in advance for your help..

If the only 2 bits you have are the D5 NEXT and the SPLITTY9, and you will use the SPLITTY9 to control fans, then:
  • connect the D5 NEXT 'USB' port to an internal motherboard USB port
  • set the SPLITTY9 jumper to NOT aquabus (only the port marked RPM will report fan RPM back)
  • connect the D5 NEXT 'fan' port to the SPLITTY9 'input' port
  • connect your fans to the 9 ports on the SPLITTY9. If you have less than 9 fans, ensure one is on the port marked 'RPM'
