What I'm asking about:



A way to have a single large reservoir set up with a section protruding upwards for air to pool up.

Yeah that makes it a lot clearer thanks. Pretty cool set up BTW. I have had a built in desk PC build on my to do list for at LEAST 10 years now...ah well one of these days.

Based on your sketch and the scale/size of the upwards facing tube I take it to mean you want an upward facing tube that is the same diameter as the main reservoir tube? If so there is not a stock part for that. If you don't require the upward facing section to be the same diameter there are at least two parts that would work. The molded coupler has 2 side facing ports that would be on the top of the reservoir facing towards the desk top, and the end caps with side facing ports also have those ports.

Is your desk top material acrylic or glass? If it is glass, do you have the ability to cut/drill openings into it? Or do you lift the top to fill / top off the reservoir? I wouldn't mind making some custom machined aluminum fill port parts for a project like this if you you can make openings in the glass.

Another option would be to run the reservoir from the far left side to the far right side and have external fill and drain ports similar to the set up in the video I posted on that subject.

I am reposting the link to the MMRS overview video link...finally figured out how to make a channel for Monsoon =)

Is there any chance to see some of the models working in action.

Some samples have gone out...hopefully people will be posting soon. If you mean assembly videos...going as fast as I can on those.

Here is the How to on the SAP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxaFuUyQl-4

Here is an MMRS overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9Di1xuhT-E

Again...5 more videos to follow as quick as I can: Basic assembly, Couplers, Fill / Drain Ports...and like Rick Perry I am drawing a blank on the other two...oh Adding a pump...and Converting an existing Monsoon Two Dual Bay Reservoir to a tube mounting back plate.

@boxgods

Quick question about installing M2-BACK-TUBE. I am suppose to use the 6 screws that came with backplate instead of the ones already on the bay reservoir, correct?

Edit: Nevermind, just realized the screws included with M2-BACK-TUBE cant be used to mount it to bay-side, so need to use the one already on the old backplate.

I should have all of my parts by Saturday, which would mean full assembly by end of next week at the earliest. I will try and do a nice little unboxing photo album and maybe some mock-ups of how I envision my setup to add to the already extensive amount of examples BoxGods has put out there for us to ooh and ahh at.

I get how to put them together, now i know what bits to get thats easy enough, i want to see one that got fluid in a loop and running through the res so can see it in action, i was just a bit concerned with it vortexing as there is no aqua tube or anti cyclone in them unless you can tell me any different.

Correct--we don't include the screws to mount the back plate to your reservoir because A: You already have them, and B: We would have to do a SKU for every finish color--resellers would LOVE that...

The six screws that are included are long set screws used to connect the tension rods to the back plate. You will find that one end of the set screw has a pocket for the included hex wrench so you can screw them in. Once all the set screws are in the back plate you put the tension rods on and it will be pretty obvious what to do from there.

The video will be out shortly.

As unboxing goes these will be pretty boring...one down side to selling all the parts individually is that 5 or 6 smaller packages can be a lot more expensive than one larger package so I went with very basic folded cards stapled to bags to keep costs down. The goal was to save you money because you only have to get the parts you need for your build...I didn't want to mess that up by going nuts with fancy pants packaging.

I discussed the vortex thing earlier but there are two ways to approach it with MMRS. The first (and my preferred method) is to use a side facing port that feeds into the reservoir opposite the vortex direction and have the energies cancel each other out. Since water returning to the reservoir has very nearly the same energy leaving the reservoir the pump does not have to fight against a plate in the flow path. The second option is to use the CCFL plug tubes to function as breaks just like a plate would--not as efficient as the first method but at least you get light out of them. The CCFL plugs were delayed but *should* be along by mid November.

If neither of those solutions appeal to people I can always add some sort of bolt on solution...that is the joy of a modular system =)
