Well, I had the luck that I only had to work two days during Easter. So there was a lot of time to play around with the software suite of aquacomputer. And I have to say: “This piece of software is a beast”. A ton of options to control the cooling and lighting of your PC. But what was achieved so far?
- Software Installation and configuration of all aquacomputer components which includes:
- A first tuning of fan profiles using the following fan groups:
- CPU_RAD_TOP: 3x120mm Noiseblocker fans pulling air through the “CPU” radiator
- CPU_RAD_BOTTOM: 3×120 mm Noiseblocker fans pushing air through the “CPU” radiator
- GPU_RAD_TOP: 3x120mm Noiseblocker Fans fans pulling air through the “GPU” radiator
- GPU_RAD_BOTTOM: 3x120mm Noiseblocker Fans fans pushing air through the “GPU” radiator
- PCD_BOTTOM: 3x140mm Noctua NF-P14s redux Fans delivering fresh air into the bottom of the motherboard chamber
- MB_CHAM: 4x140mm Noiseblocker Fans pushing air “sideways” into the motherboard chamber (in order to cool all non-water cooled parts like the M2 drive or the VCC’s on the motherboard
- Configuration of the two water pumps and according flow sensors in order to ensure quiet water loop operation
- Configuration of various virtual software sensors in the aquasuite in order to have a proper and reliable measurement base
- Definition of some first RGB-Profiles
- Design and Setup of a customized dashboard for my integrated screen
Here’s a screenshot of the dashboard which I have designed and configured so far:
And here some impressions of the “real world” application. The screen I’m using here is a USB 3.0 Monitor from ASUS.
A detailed documentation for the “how-to section” will be created later on
