hi, everyone.

In my original plan, icarus project will discontinued after batch 3, because i must move to my next product "Lancelot".

maybe because it's really at least 8 weeks away. i saw many people still want Icarus board, and start a unofficial Group buying thread.

as everyone noticed, some event which make us not pleasant happened.

first of all, i make this product not only for make money for my self, but also by my interest. by doing this, now i have many friends around the world.

this time i underestimated everybody's enthusiasm on icarus, but my future plan must continue. so i find one of my friend "xiangfu" to operate this group purchase. i trusted him, and i will take the risk of any scam issues. i hope you can trust him too.

some notice:

1, this batch will no more than 50 boards.
2, 90% possibility will ship out in April.
3, will ship from China.

Ah ok, no problem. I guess I'll have to wait until ngzhang releases Lacelot - or maybe someone here sells his Icarus.

*** SOLD ***

I have 5 Icarus from the 3rd batch that I am willing to sell. I paid slightly less than ngzhang's original price of $569 for them (shipping was free) and I had them for about a month (with 2 weeks down time during my vacation, since I didn't have time to set them up before I left). I have been using them with MPBM and they do a great job.

They come with power supplies from ngzhang, USB cables, the hex mounts (some spare if you need), original packing and everything.

Optimally I am looking for one person to buy them all. Feel free to send me a PM with your offer if you are interested.

Shipping will be free. I am in Hong Kong, so expect an international parcel (sending as a gift or sample is no problem). I can ship via EMS Speedpost (Intl courier 4 or 5 days) or Airmail (can take 3 weeks or even longer, but is safer to send as "gift"). If you want FedEx, UPS or DHL I can probably send them for a nice value, but as "gift" is impossible. And these couriers will probably charge $50 or more for shipping and then some handling fee to import them for you into your country. You can avoid that high cost with EMS Speedpost or Airmail (EMS is what ngzhang also uses).

I accept BitCoin but if you insist on cash you'll have to wire money to my bank account in Hong Kong or Europe (SEPA).

If none of the "usual suspects" here in the Icarus threads want them I may trying to re-post this in the market section. I am selling them for private reasons, so please don't ask. I can guarantee that they work and I will pack them very well, but I can't give any additional warranty and you'll have to talk to ngzhang for support (just as you would have purchased them from him).

Just kidding.

That said, if your present deal falls through, I am definitely interested in purchasing them. I have a "Web of Trust" rating, too, though it's been a long while since I've used it. I also have a post history that will probably convince you it'd be a bad idea to let me have your Icarus boards. I kind of got screwed out of the "last 50 batch", I went on vacation for 3 days and when I came back they had made a new thread and sold out already.

Yeah, this is a pretty stupid way of marketing.  But what do you expect from some little Chinese dude.

I buy and sell GPUs, most 5850s and 7970s.

Stupid ways of marketing = entire batch sold in ~24h.  Huh

He's not just sitting on thousands of these things. The current batch isn't ready for distribution yet because it takes him a long time to build & do QC.

If your entire batch is so small (like asian penis...) when there are LOTS of people like me who would spend 5 grand or so on MORE ... to just close it out like this ... not smart.

He could be making a LOT more money.

Stop sucking his balls.

Wussy.

His clear familiarity with "asian penis" speaks loudly of his preference. Ignorant fucking little troll douchebag. The only "5 grand" this worthless troglodyte will ever see will be the wishes he has to fit in with decent people. Fuckwit- if you knew anything at all about this development it is not about "making a LOT more money" it is about a technical solution to a theoretical problem, shared through the means of small batch production. Clearly another basement dwelling mouth-breather who thinks the way to become a bazillionaire is to create these magical bitcoin beans out of thin air, and he just needs the magic bean machine. His next post will be the loan request so he can spend the 5 grand, promising to pay back from his enormous profits.

Okay, look, if this shit continues I'm just going to just start _paying_ Theymos to ban people. I'm pretty sure I could get some sort of bulk deal for 1BTC a person.
