Monsoon: Chain Gun Compression Fitting

  Introduction Continued innovation and creativity is what fuels a healthy industry. If either of those key items fade away, so does that industry. Thank goodness we don’t have to worry about that! The custom water cooling market has been around for years but never in its lifetime have we seen such rapid growth. Sealed AIO coolers, water blocks, pumps, reservoirs and radiators are now being manufactured by so many companies it is hard to keep track of it all. This rapid growth has spurred companies to innovate and create products that distinguish themselves from the rest of the pack. This is a big win for consumers. One company that really shook up the market is Monsoon. We saw them go from a more conventional style in their first series of fittings to innovating with the Free Center series of compression fittings. There wasn’t (and still isn’t) a fitting so widely used and loved as the Free Center fitting. Monsoon is looking to continue pushing the envelope with their latest creation, the Chain Gun Compression fitting. This time around it is all about creativity. Nothing has changed much when it comes to how the new fitting works; instead it’s about how the new fittings look. Before we continue the review of the new Monsoon Chain Gun Compression fitting, let us take a moment to reintroduce Monsoon Cooling.
