    Just had a major floodage and seems that my Aquaero Pro 5 has blown- it will only power up one of my 2 pumps.
    Pumps work if plugged into molex cables but I can't control them- any way I can do so if the AP5 has blown?
    The pumps have a mloex connector and a single pin fan controller
    HELLLP!

    The only way to control them manually is via a sufficiently powerful PWM fan controller that can handle the draw on the pumps. Else you are looking at an Aquaero or similar electronic setup that has temp sensors and fan/pump controls.

    thanks- I will try using my spare Lamptron Touch to see if it works as it claims to have 30w per channel
    Will I need any special connector for this as the 3 pin out of the pump only has a blue pin (single)

    ^^ this
    use one of Lamptron's high-power fan controller - it manages up to 30w per channel. but it lacks "algorithmic" controls. also there is sunbeamtech rheosmart with ability to control fan/pumps via PWM signal from MB
