I have same tower, and use an older model Cigar Oasis that looks like the Magna but has a couple of plug in fans as well

When I had the Tower of power humidor, I used the Hydra without issue.
The issue I did have was different humidity levels at the bottom and top.
I wouldn't blame the Hydra, it was more the tall narrow design of the humidor.
I solved the issue by putting a bag of beads on each shelf.
That's the setup that worked for me.

I have the set and forget now, in a different humidor, and I have no issue with it.
I don't use beads any longer, but my current system includes multiple reservoirs and circulation fans.
An extra reservoir in the Tower of Power could be a little cumbersome and eat into the capacity a bit.

Same here. I even drilled some 1.5 holes in the back of the middle shelf and installed some fans to draw the air/moisture up from the bottom. But when I added the beads it really helped stabilize it.
