Monsoon Series Two Premium D5 / MCP655 Dual Bay

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking to get a good Bay RES and get rid of my Case mounted pump/Res combo so I can have more space inside the case.
Looking for feed back on the Monsoon or similar set ups and would you use D5 or another pump.

My current set up is a Alpha Cool D5 with a Koolance top and 80mm diameter tube reservoir and that takes up lots of space

I've heard good things about the monsoon res. Plus with their chaingun fittings it looks pretty awesome. The Reservoir is the least important part of that setup, really. As long as you have a good pump DDC or D5 you should be able to find any reasonable res that can house it and you should be good to go really.

Any other comments on this Res or D5 VS DDC.
My loop is a Swiftech 360 and a Phobya 200 with a XSPC RAYSTORM block on 1155 3/8 x 5/8 tubing

D5s are more expensive, but I believe have a "better" lifetime. DDCs are fine with most loops but I think if you plan on adding GPUs plus several radiators you could run into some issues. But with that current setup I would think a single DDC would be ok. Tubing diameter will always be the least restrictive part in your loop and for watercooling, they don't really make small enough tubing to actually make a difference so you are fine there.

Thanks for the information.

I like the compact design of the DDC and may do a serial pump set up for safety.

Many users do that. Just make sure to leak test with your PSU jumped. When you start adding pumps in series you can add a lot of pressure to your components and can pop fittings.
