yeah I've recognised that. I was thinking it was another chip because there was posts about 10$. My information about exact costs and minimum bundle amount may be helpfull to many, so I posted that.
I am also interested in Building miners, but don't have funds yet. PMing me about efficient  and small amount orders would be appreciated.

You can build a miner by buying old Antminer S1, S3 or S5 and then Hotmine X5 or Hotmine X6 upgrade kit from Hotmine.
Hotmine: http://en.hotmine.io/x5-x6-upgrade-kit-new
With first two (S1, S3) you need to buy separately a BB board (Beaglebone Black) and build a supporting bracket for it.
S5 has BB board.
You can see my review/guide for more instructions.

they use 16nm Bitfury in Sunrise and for next gen altcoin miner (Multiclet) it's 28nm with working prototype (concept validation) at much higher nm.

As would I.
Great, that only leaves only 9,998 more (@ $100ea) folks needed just to meet Bitfury's $1M Minimum Order Req. for chips...

Don't see that happening anytime soon

God, you're killing me.  Been trying to get three sets for quite awhile.  A few folks here have been trying to get a group buy together with trusted sources.  They have a ten set minimum.  Daria does answer all emails given 10 days or so.  I don't want to keep bugging them until they roll out their cart system if that's in the cards....

If you have a source for individual sets - I'd love to hear about it!  I'm sort of surprised at the lack of companies not doing this.  The business is already there and waiting to happen.  (Isn't that the basis of the "disrupter" economy?)

I  too would like to buy up to 4 X5 boards. As you all may have seen, there price jumped from $500 to $650. I wonder why they are selling these at all at this point. Maybe a new chip nearby? Perhaps I missed it in other comments, but what is the shipping time like? I think the minimum buy is 10 boards if I understand correctly. I asked for clarification, but didn't get a reply from Vadim. What is the total demand from this forum so far? Have they answered anyone regarding weather or not they will use escrow?
