First off, I ordered some Monsoon economy fittings as I did not fancy using adhesive and was sent the free centre fittings. The company made a mistake with listing so I have to go with these as I cannot find the ones I want from any supplier in the UK and I had already ordered the Monsoon PETG tubing. I assume I can use the free centre fittings with PETG?

I received my goodies from Overclockers yesterday. The design is impeccable and it looks fantastic!

2 - Monsoon MMRS Reservoir Mount 25mm - White
1 - Monsoon Free Center Hardline 1/2 X 5/8 (16mm) 6 Pack - Black Chrome
1 - Monsoon MMRS Dual Bulb CCFL Light for 150mm Tube - White
1 - Monsoon MMRS Acrylic Tube 150mm - Clear
1 - Monsoon MMRS End Cap with D5 Pump Mount - Black
1 - Monsoon MMRS D5 Motor Mounting Cover - White
1 - Monsoon MMRS Tension Rods 150mm - White
1 - Monsoon MMRS Single Port End Cap - Black

Secondly, my beef is attaching the pump cover to the D5 pump top, it just would not screw in so I tried it without the pump and it started to screw in and then jammed. I was careful not to force it or cross thread it but it is going no where. Overclockers are happy to RMA it.




Thirdly, CCFL. If I realised getting a CCFL inverter that would not burn down my rig would be such a hassle I would not have bothered and gone for some led lights and the three port top to pop them in. I asked Overclockers if they intend to stock the inverter when Monsoon release it and was told they had no plans to do so. Why sell the lights if you don't sell a way of powering them? confused.gif

This has not put me off doing my loop and using Monsoon products and I'm sorry if my first post is a bit of a moan.

Regards

Jeremy


taking it from memory i think the delay was due to a last minute problem with the inverters that box gods quickly remedied but delayed their availability...i think they also put out an extender ring for those using d5 pumps to allow that extra space...boxgods will chime in shortly to confirm or deny what ive said

Our returns department was incorrect in telling you we will not be stocking the Inverters as we have them on order at the moment. Hopefully they just meant No ETA.

Thanks for the update! Just to clarify, it was sales who gave me the info, your Returns team have been very helpful so a big thumb.gif to them.

I can 100% confirm this. OCUK HAS ordered the inverters--the delay is on our part, not theirs. We found a small issue in the new inverters where the SATA plug on the PCB can tear free id too muck pressure is applied in an upward motion. We destroyed the production run and are making up a new batch with a different type of SMT SATA plug. I apologize for the delay, but I like for things to be as right as I can get them. We are doing our best to get the inverters out as quickly as we can and I will update here as we progress.

On the pump top--it is almost always an issue getting the threads started evenly (not cross threaded). If you hold the tube and pump top as evenly as you can and turn the mounting tube backwards slowly you will eventually feel it sort of "click" into place and then you can reverse and it should screw on correctly.

There are a few videos on our channel that cover this. You can start here:

Also, the lock collars work fine with PETG tube so you are all set. OCUK will also be adding the new Version 2 Economy fittings at some point. We are still trying to catch up on US back orders.

I received the replacement pump top and cover, hats off to Overclockers for great customer service! The new one screwed together lovely jubbly and is being leak tested. First of all I placed the seal on the pump instead of in the pump top and realised my error when water started pouring out. I'm sure that won't be my last Homer moment 😀


Thank you for confirming the tubing will work with the collars. Guess what I will be doing this weekend...

I appreciate you wanting to get the inverters right, it says a lot about the integrity of a company when you are prepared to take a hit rather than release something half baked.

If you're bending tube for the first time I would spend some time with our how-to videos. They cover the lock collars, measuring tube, cutting it...and of course bending.

Just remember to enjoy yourself as it actually is a lot of fun.

I've decided to draw a line under my build. Some items remain on the wish list ... and I will get around to those as and when I can.

The build features a Monsoon reservoir (you can see the fill top in the picture below) and monsoon fittings (econ v1). I am still working on my hard tube bending skills ... the flex tube will be replaced at some point.

Not finished but look at that fogged uv blue rez.... She's beautiful!!! And that's with only 2 of his uv cathode inserts! Planned for 3 but broke one 😞
Still building ofcourse, used his rigid 16mm tube bending kit too

I have to ask about the name...likely some cultural reference I am too old to know about biggrin.gif

Now you know why I am not a big fan of LED lighting in tube reservoirs. The CCFL's are a bit of a hassle sometimes but you get a lot of very even light. LED's tend to have an uneven look in tubes because there is just not a lot of "throw" distance for the individual LED's to even out.
