Description

The QUADRO made by Aqua Computer is a four channel PWM fan controller with outstanding functionality, equally suited for water cooled or air cooled computers. Additionally, it features an RGBpx effect controller for 90 addressable LEDs.

Key features of the QUADRO include:
· Programmable four channel fan controller
· All fan outputs supply up to 25 Watt of power per channel and include speed monitoring
· All fan outputs with 4-Pin connector and PWM controlled
· All fan outputs can be switched off completely
· Versatile control options
· Four temperature sensor inputs
· Eight further values can be transferred from the PC to the QUADRO using the aquasuite software
· Flow sensor input
· RGBpx LED output for LED strips and fans with individually controllable LEDs
· USB 2.0 interface
· aquasuite software for a comfortable setup, evaluation and visualization of all sensor data
· aquabus interface: When connected to an aquaero, the fan outputs can be controlled by the aquaero

Fan controller
The four fan channels of the QUADRO can be configured independently, the high maximum power output of 25 watts per channel allows for connecting multiple fans to each output of the QUADRO using suitable splitters. In addition to setting fan speed manually, fan speed can also be controlled by temperature. In temperature controlled mode, set point controllers as well as curve controllers are available. If the corresponding temperature falls below the set limit, connected fans can either be switched off or be kept running at an adjustable minimum speed. For secure fan start-up, an intelligent start boost with speed signal monitoring can be configured for each fan channel.
All fan outputs are compatible to PWM fans with four pin connectors only and feature overload protection.

RGBpx controller for addressable LEDs
The QUADRO controller is equipped with an RGBpx output for controlling up to 90 addressable LEDs independently. Color and brightness can be individually controlled for each LED. In total, up to four groups of LEDs of varying size can be configured, and visual effects can be assigned to each group. The 23 available effects can be extensively adjusted for further customization. Many effects can also be configured to modify effect parameters (for example speed) depending on current sensor data. The available effects also include sound-to-light effects, visualizing computer sound output. The AMBIENTpx effect deserves special notice, replicating the border area of the current monitor display on connected LEDs, allowing for an impressive background lighting surrounding the monitor.
Alternatively to the LED strips offered by Aqua Computer, LED fans made by Corsair and NZXT can be connected using the optional accessory RGBpx Splitty4 (item code 53267, not included in delivery).

QUADRO can be used as an aquabus expansion device
Besides being a fully autonomous USB fan controller, the QUADRO can also be used as an aquabus extension to an aquaero 5 or aquaero 6. In this configuration, the four fan channels of the QUADRO can be controlled by the aquaero, temperature sensor inputs and flow sensor input are transmitted to the aquaero. A maximum of two QUADRO controllers can be connected to an aquaero simultaneously.

Best Fan Controller

The Quadro (and larger Octo) is the best fan controller money can buy. For air cooling, you can get buy on motherboard headers. For an AIO/CLC, use the built-in fan controls, and maybe have chassis fans running off the motherboard. But for a custom watercooling loop, nothing matches the Quadro/Octo.

The Aquasuite app uses minimal resources and is infinitely configurable. The only downside I’ve seen is that Aquasuite can’t control the motherboard headers, which could be nice for expansion without the Octo size.

My aquasuite settings are relatively basic. On the four 2-pin sensor headers, I use the included sensor for ambient temp and a Phobya G1/4 sensor in the loop for water temp. In aquasuite I built a virtual sensor for the water/ambient delta. Instead of basing fan curves on just the water sensor (like the motherboard can do), the delta from ambient means the fans won’t be running fast when my computer is idling in a hot room, or cycling up/down during heavy workloads in a cold room.

On the 4-pin PWM fan headers, I have the pump on one header, two fans on two headers, and a splitter for two fans on the last header. (The headers also have the amperage to power a pump if you wanted to wire your pump that way.) The pump is at a fixed RPM and I set three different fan curves based on the water/ambient delta. My fans all ramp at different times to make ramp noise less audible.

Simply put, I would not call my watercooling loops complete without a Quadro. And FWIW, FrozenCPU is the only place where there’s inventory and it isn’t price gouged. Super happy that this site is back up and running with new ownership.

Perfect small fan controller

Replaced a Corsair CLCP and it works so much better. Aquasuite is pretty awesome.
