Has anyone received a reply recently?  Have all the parts except the x5 boards.  Am eager to build this.  If anyone has the x5 or x6 boards would be willing to buy at a good price.  

I've sent a request but haven't heard back yet.

it took almost two weeks for their replay after a couple of emails we exchanged before

they said that X6 upgrade cost 825 usd  and it could take 8 weeks to be delivered, becacuse they are waiting to get more orders, which is understandable

but after my last email to them - no response

If they want to get more orders together, I'm game.  I emailed them from their site and waiting for a response.  I realize this could be used to upgrade my C1s, and I have a pile of them.  So I could put in a big order for these if they work in an Antminer C1.  They should.  I think they are all the same boards and the C1s just had the water cooling blocks instead of the fins.

Well I think it's time to give up on this. It's a dud. To the trash bin S5s and S3s they go.

I received an email from them recently.

As of 10/19, they quoted price of X6 kit of $950 USD, prepayment, with a 6 week lead.

No mention of the X5 kit.

I don't think so. That's a big ask, to prepay for a 6 week lead. A lot can/could happen in that time.

I was ready to pre-pay (in any form, be it BTC or USD), but after 2 weeks of conversation they ended up saying that they were "unable to serve an order". Kinda strange business model, to say the least.

finnaly, they replied to me (same prices)

correct me if I'm wrong, but If I understand right, they said that you must order 10 units minimum for international delivery, this is not applied for customer pickup in Ukraine

They got back to me today to say they don't ship to the US currently and don't have a reseller here. If enough of us are interested we might be able to place a large enough order to make it worth their while, though. PM me if you're interested, I'd be good with coordinating (or buying in if someone wants a bunch and just needs a few people to jump in, either way).

I made a thread in the marketplace section to discuss/plan if we get enough folks. Seems the consensus is that a 10 piece minimum will likely be required. Discussion here:
