So, Chatting with Gene from Monsoon. He said they're going to be launching this stuff soon. Check it out!

"Modular Tube Reservoir System
Well the new Modular Tube Reservoirs are finally done!

It is a bit of an explanation, but it is a modular system featuring 60mm diameter tubes, various molded end caps, machined stainless tension rods, various machined aluminum parts, mounts, and lights etc. The goal is to have all the individual components sold individually so each builder can assemble exactly the reservoir he needs for his particular build. Think Lego's and being able to make a reservoir that fits what you are trying to do rather than being forced to bend your build to fit an off the shelf one size fits all reservoir.

Shown below is a render of most of the different components available at launch--these are just some of the colors as all 10 of our Monsoon color finishes will be available.








Reservoir tubes will come in colors matched to our Hardline acrylic and PETG tube and in six lengths from 2' (50mm) to 12" (300mm) in 2" (50mm) increments. End caps will come in two variants--with and without side facing ports--and in zero, one, and three end facing ports. The fill and drain port parts come in a round AND square variant to better match your build and are machined aluminum. Mounts--also machined aluminum--come in a low profile 1/2" (12mm) "Grasshopper" tall, 1" (25mm) tall, and 2" (50mm) tall, and allow for 60 degrees rotation right or left. They also have machined aluminum "load spreaders" for the back side. The tube couplers feature side ports so you can put side facing ports anywhere along the length of the reservoir in 2" (50mm) lengths and you can join or "couple" as many tube sections together as you like. Tensions rods are solid machined stainless. There is a D5 pump head end and also a matching stand alone D5 pump head. There are purpose built Dual Bulb CCFL lights that fit behind the reservoir/s and put out a lot of high quality light. They allow you to light each tube segment the color of your choice also so you can mix and match as required by your theme.

I don't want this first post to be a mile long so I can give more details later. Below are pictures of the assemblies given away as prizes at last weekends Quake Con. These are just three of four of the hundreds, (maybe thousands) of possible combinations as it is a truly modular system...there is even a part that allows you to mate tube reservoirs to our best selling Monsoon Two dual bay reservoirs.




This is our Monsoon Two Dual Bay Reservoir, the tube adapter back plate, 4 inch (100mm) UV green tube, 4" (100mm) matte black tension rods, the molded D5 motor end, and matte black motor tube cover.




This is the round (it also comes in a square) machined aluminum outside cap in blue, The molded fill / drain port end cap, 2" (50mm) dark blue tube, 2" (50mm) blue tension rods with matching blue screws, and molded one port end cap with side ports, (you can get the end cap with or without side facing ports). There is a blue plug you can't see down in the overflow basin. The overflow basin features a telescoping O ring seal that allows the unit to adjust from 1mm case panel thickness to 6mm thickness and seals. That way if you accidentally overflow a bit when filling it won't leak from the outside into your case.




Starting from the back--molded 3 port end cap with red silver bullet antimicrobial plug and two standard stop plugs in red, 12" (300mm) blood red tube, 12" (300mm) red tension rods with matching red screws, molded one port end cap, and Low profile 1/2" (12mm) "Grasshopper" machined aluminum mounts in red.





This unit is intended to be mounted horizontally and has two molded D5 pump caps, two 4" (100mm) tubes in UV green, 2 sets of 4" (100mm) matte black tension rods, a molded two port tube coupler, 1" (25mm) machined aluminum mounts, and two twin bulb CCFL light units in UV.

Quality is top notch and on par with our M2 reservoirs. As I mentioned the 60mm diameter reservoir tubes are color matched to our Hard Line acrylic and PETG tubing. The metal parts will be available in all ten of our Monsoon color finishes so they exactly match all of our compression fittings, accessory plugs, rotaries, etc. I don't know prices yet but they should be inline with any other premium tube reservoirs on the market...so likely not "chap" but not "OMG" expensive either. Manufacturing on the first run is done and being loaded on a slow boat to keep shipping costs down...so about 5 weeks. Performance PC's may break down and order some for air shipment...so about two weeks (give or take) if they do."



So, in short. Literally THOUSANDS of combinations can be made with these parts. And I believe there are more to come after the launch.

Looks like Performance is ordering a batch air shipped...so about two weeks give or take.

Let me know if anyone has any questions...

Wow these look incredible, and I'm in the market for a res upgrade! I just hope their cost isn't a legend in their own mind...

Should be near most other premium reservoirs. Not cheap, but not break the bank. biggrin.gif

I didn't know you were here as well. Like I mentioned over email, thanks for all the info thumb.gif

They are premium parts so as solid shark mentioned, in line with other premium tube reservoirs. Depending on your build they might come in a bit cheaper because you only need to buy the parts you need for your actual build...non of the usual filler crap that pushes the price up. Also when you upgrade your machine or move the reservoir to a new build, you can get only the parts needed tor any changes.

That blue one up there would fit quit well with my Industrial Reclamation sig rig. Will be watching ppcs to get them in.

That dual bay res is very interesting. Not sure what purpose the tube res attachment would serve but the design looks slick.

To me it seems to just have more water capacity.

Keep in mind any pictures you see of an assembled reservoir is not really "the" product as there is no "single' product. The point is allowing anyone to configure exactly the reservoir they need for their particular build. That is my biggest worry for this launch...guys will skim through posts and think the assembly shown in the picture is the product.

As mentioned, you can add more reservoir capacity. It also allows you to select the tube length you want to get ports farther back into the case...the stock lengths are 50mm, 100mm, 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, and 300mm but you can also add in couplers with side facing ports (pointed any direction you like) to make ports available pretty much anywhere...like right over a CPU or chip set block...or right under a radiator port, etc.

Plus it is just awesome looking to have the tube seemingly floating in space. You also don't need to put a pump end on it--you can use one of the other molded end cap variations....endless variations and creative opportunities is sort of the point =)
