Monsoon Series Two Pump/Res

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking at this bay res pump for my build but curious to see if anybody has used them?

I am using one. However it is my first custom loop so I don't have any comparison input.

I do like it a lot though.

I mounted it below my DVD drive so when i need to bleed it or fill it I just remove the drive and access the reservoir from the top two ports. I am running the Swiftech MCP655-PWM pump in it.

It is very well built and seemingly well thought out as well.

If you like lights it has a lot of options for light colors and 2 intensity settings.

I'd buy one again.

Thanks for the reply. My major concern is how well it bleeds air and if there is any vibration that transfers to the case. Can you comment on this?

I had the Monsoon Premium Res from Danger Den and it worked fine.

It bleeds great out the top port. There is some vibration but I do not think it is to bad and only noticeable when I have my pump up really high. . The mount has rubber grommets that come between the unit and the drive bay cage so the transfer of vibration is minimized.

I would think if you want absolute minimal noise then a resevoir/pump that is mounted internally is the way to go (if room permits)
