New products from Monsoon cooling - Page 126

post #1251 of 4376
Following up on my previous posts of my leaky D5 TRP endcap, all of my problems were resolved after I received my package from BoxGods with my replacement TRP part (with the correct screws ).

Anyways all is well and I'm happy now. Idle temps in the high-20's and load temps in the high-30's.

I'll take some better quality pics of my rig once I have time to clean up the wiring but here's a teaser for now.

We wrap the tension rods individually to protect the finish. The 50mm long rods are a bit of a PITA to unwrap but the 5 longer sizes are a fair bit easier as there is more room for the little band of tape. Just grasp towards each end and twist in opposite directions and the wrapping will unravel or loosen then you can open it like a straw.

One of the problems I wanted to avoid with a modular system is packaging cost. If you have selected 5 or 6 components to build your reservoir that is the cost of 5 or 6 packages vs one if it was an assembled reservoir. The tissue on the tension rods is not ideal but it protects them and keeps packaging costs down.

I love that the product itself is so amazing the only complaints I have seen are the packaging? Sounds good to me! ;-)

If they only sent 5 tension rods I'd email them so they can straighten that out for ya.

What are these chrome tensions rods use for?

I recently got burnt by picking up some Bitspower rotary 90° adapter (with connector) only to find that they didn't work with the Monsoon hardline tube [3/8" x 1/2"] as the Bitspower required tubing that was 10/12mm while the monsoon tubing is imperial (ie inches).

I'm swapping to the Bitspower rotary 90° adapter (sans connector) and planning to use Monsoon Hardline Economy Compression Fittings [1/2" x 5/8"].

The questions I have are ...
  1. Can I use the Monsoon Hardline Economy Compression Fitting [1/2" x 5/8"] fittings for soft tubing?
  2. If so, which version of the soft tubing works best?
  3. Is PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing [3/8"x 1/2"] a viable option?
  4. If the word 'HardLine' in the fitting actually means something (ie not soft line), then what sort of monsoon fitting works best? / well? for flexible tubing?

If I were you I'd get the matching-size monsoon 90 degree adapter instead of that bitspower one. I have that bitspower adapter and my monsoon 1/2"x3/4" compression fittings won't fit on it (and it's not close)

That's interesting. They both report that they are using 'Industry standard G 1/4 threads' - female on the Bitspower and male on the monsoon.

This get's the point across I think. I'm not saying you'll have that problem with that particular combination. But I had this problem with that bitspower adapter and these fittings.

EDIT: I think I'm wrong
