Building on the original Monsoon's success, the new Monsoon Series Two D5 Premium features a host of design refinements and improved modularity all aimed at making them easier to use, quieter, and a better overall value. The new vibration dampening mounting system is the industry's first and only 100% decoupled mounting solution and dramatically reduces the amount of sound generating vibration transmitted from your pump to your chassis. The 40% glass filled molded nylon main body now features sound dampening cavities that work on the same principles as the baffles in a car muffler or the sound dampening material on the walls of a recording studio—each time you redirect a sound wave it loses energy. The machined aluminum motor mounting tube and end cap with sound dampening foam further contains and isolates sound waves and vibration while keeping your pump cool.
The new LED lighting board has been moved to the bottom of the reservoir to prevent accidentally getting it wet if the user overflows the top fill port catch basins and the board now features RGB color changing LED's that allow the user to scroll through the color presets and select the perfect light/color for their build. It also now has a chip that retains your brightness setting and light color selection on power down. The face plate is still machined 6mm aluminum, but the mounting screws are now hidden on the back for a cleaner more streamlined look—no cheesy 1mm thick faux aluminum face plates stuck on with double back tape here. It also now features a premium powder coated black finish to match all the most popular cases. The pump back is precision machined PVC and because the reservoir is fully modular, the pump backs, face plates, motor mounting hardware, and color matched screws and stop plugs can be mixed and matched to suit your current and future builds. All screws are color coordinated stainless steel and the included stop plugs are color coordinated machined brass. Sleeving is premium triple strand triple weave and the Molex plug is black.

Looks and works great05-15-2014

These res looks and works great. Unfortunately, I realized too late that my new HAF stacker build didn''t have enough bays for this to work with a dual bay Aerocool fan controller so I used it in my old HAF X build that I passed on to my wife. The LED''s are just bright enough and there is absolutely zero vibration noise. If you''re looking for a dual bay res with just a little "bling", I high recommend this.
Very Nice Reservoir04-11-2014

This is a very nice reservoir that is well built and has nice lighting modes. Normally I would have given a 5 star rating to a product I really like but the 2nd day the light board failed. A quick email to MONSOON had a replacement light board out to my door in just 2 days so that proves the support and commitment they have for their products. If you are looking at bay reservoirs this one is worth a look.

Looks good. I had to get a replacement light board, it stopped working at 1 month. I had to remove front cover to clean glass. I think it should have been done when assembled.I have a Cooler Master Cosmos S and the soft rubber inserts only matched up on one side of case. I had to use other holes. one stripped out.
