The top end cap that comes with 3 X G1/4 threads, has a 4th G1/4 added in the center for the light tube.

The new Monsoon parts will have a lighting plug that will allow you to install a light tube into any Res, check out the video and he talks about them at 29:30 so fast forward to that point. He mentions that he can't show you one yet because they aren't quite done yet but I'm looking forward to them when they do actually come out. Only down side is that it sounds like they are a CCFL and not LED, but that could be a good thing inside the Tube Res as it would cast light 360* unlike the LED sticks.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




While the modular concept is nice, they look butt fugly / too industrial to me. . . . . On the other hand . . .

The CCFL item you mention, could be really cool . . . . as it should work for almost any res.


Looks like he's been able to shrink the tube enclosure tube so that it's small enough to fit thru a G1/4 port.

A CCFL tube will fit in a 3/16 ID by 5/16 OD acrylic tube, which easily fits thru a G1/4 plug with a 5/16 hole in it.

I've made a couple prototypes along that line . . . . . . but, I only have clear 3/16 X 5/16 and

I'm still leery about having the free end where it's free to be moved about by the normal fluid currents and turbulence in the res.

Not to mention the stress that would be present if it was a long res in a horizontal configuration. . . . .

With the way I 've made mine, I can use CCFL lamps as easily as LED strips, they just slip in or out the end port, the big difference, a least to me, is that the dead end of the tube is indexed on a locating pin, so that high turbulence or horizontal configuration, even with a very long res doesn't stress the live end.

Bitspower 12mm tube comes in colors, so that if I wanted a solid color, I could use a CCFL and the appropriately colored tube.

The one thing nice about 12mm X 10mm tube is that it allows to double up the LED strip back to back, so it has twice as many leds as you see, plus the rear facing ones reflect a lot off the internal curvature of the res tube, so while you don't have the 360 degree emission of CCFL, it's not as unidirectional as you might imagine.


Here's a pair of 400 mm tubes with CCFLs instead of LED strips:

The modularity of those reservoirs is just awesome. Looks like I've got something to try out for my next build, whenever that manifests.
post #16695 of 22477
Yup, next build will incorporate Monsoon parts. At least the reservoir and pump housing.

If only they had the bulky, black, hockey puck looking parts, also available in clear Acrylic, I could warm up to these enough to spend some real money.

I absolutely love them. Though I can't help but feel an idea I pitched to Geno years ago was the basis for it all. He probably wouldn't remember, it was just an idea I had in quick passing on some emails back and forth. Either way, we need more companies like Monsoon, and less Borrow, err, Barrow.

So I think I figured out how I'm going to do the fillport for the reservoirs on top of the left side of the case. I have a couple fittings I can use for that. However, now I'm trying to think about doing a "drain" port somewhere. The pumps are going to be down in the "basement". I think I'm going to put a "T" fitting right after the out port on the pump. The top-facing part of the T will head up to the mb/vid card. The other part, I think, I can pretty easily throw a ball valve on them both, and then join them so I only end up with a single drain port. The question becomes... *where* to put the passthrough for emptying. I suppose I could just leave a loose bit of flex tube I can pull out and throw into a bucket or something, but that seems sloppy. Any thoughts? I don't mind it being visible (on the front) and especially not if I get a quick disconnect bulkhead type fitting for that purpose, but that might take a bit of work. I suppose I could just route it out the back.

Open to suggestions...

PS - Again, this is going to be an S8 build.

Hi guys,

I need some info from someone with an S8;

How tall are the standoffs that the mobo tray sits on, on the GPU side?

The ones outlined in red in the pic.

They look to be about 1/4", but I need an exact measurement.



Thanks in advance,

Darlene


Tip of the hat to fast_fate's Saliv8 build, iirc, for the pic
