Hard core water coolers have long known that no fluid cools as efficiently as pure water and that every chemical additive that goes into the fluid displaces pure water—taking a little bit of that efficiency with it. Top efficiency is great in theory, but we all know what happens to water after a while, no matter how pure it is. Green gunk grows in it making our beautiful cooling loops look like that sad little fish tank at the dentist's office.
The proven antimicrobial action of silver is a great solution for keeping your cooling loop as pristine as the day you installed it--but the coils are a pain to install, look bad in your reservoir, and can sometimes migrate into areas where they don't belong. They also require you to crack open your loop when it comes time to replace them—another case of the cure being almost as bad as the problem.
Monsoon has taken the proven microbe killing power of silver and plated it onto a patent pending reservoir plug that is better looking, easier to install, stays where you put it, and is painless to replace, usually without requiring you to break down your loop.
Installation and Usage:
Build your loop as you normally would. Fill it with a quality third party fluid--pure high quality distilled or deionized water. Install the Monsoon Silver Bullet Plug in any port on your reservoir that will place the pin in good contact with your fluid and in an area with circulation using a coin or screwdriver.
The silver on your Silver Bullet Antimicrobial Plug will eventually tarnish to a black color—this is normal for silver and just lets you know it is doing what it is supposed to be doing--interacting with the fluid in your loop and killing microbes. The effective life of your plug will vary based on loop size, initial water quality, computer usage patterns, etc.; but generally, we recommend replacing your Silver Bullet Plugs every 6 to 12 months. Down the road, if you're not sure, just leave your original Silver Bullet installed and add a new one to another available port. Then in another 6 to 12 months, replace the original plug. Keep rotating a new one on that schedule.

Rusts After a Year07-08-2014
Reviewer: Adam (1)
This is just some iron or other metal coated with silver. It works well but after a year of use the coating has ionized off and the plug has begun rusting. I was fortunate enough to catch it early enough before flakes started entering my loop. Don''t get this, just save yourself the trouble and get a regular silver killcoil. It''s safer and lasts much longer.
Absolutely a necessity for distilled water loops.04-09-2014
Reviewer: Vinny D (3)
If you are using plain distilled or DI water then you either need a biocide like Dead Water or a Silver Killcoil. This takes the silver killcoil idea and converts it into a stop plug that fit basically in any G1/4 inch thread screw-in. Use it in your reservoir, a T-line, radiator, etc. and it will keep "the nasties" from being born in your water loop. Nobody wants living organisms inside their water loop; that''s just nasty! Highly recommended!!

So far so good, its been several months and my distilled water is as clear as can be. I added dead water too. I still change my water Bi-monthly.
Awesome for Alphacool rads10-15-2013
Reviewer: Joe (37)
Running two loops and have this plugged into my Alphacool 45mm rads. Works wells and beat having a kill coil rattling around the res.
Looks cool, little long06-27-2013
Reviewer: DEPHIC (6)
Looks pretty cool. A little long so it needs space to fit. I have a 5 way adapter and it won''t fit except in the ends. Helps keep the slime away. 1/2 gallon loop, one of these and a silver coil keeps it clean.
