Do you plan to sell the intel/amd mounting separately so someone could buy one block and use it on either platform?

I had to take a emergency trip back home for 10 hours and got to open this bad boy up. Everything looks beautiful. So excited for when I get done with training.

Nope, as answer in earlier posts, it's not just the mount but the mounting screws also. And we are offering "complete" products. And shipping costs on such small value items is not worthwhile

@Nouvolo what's international shipping like? Specifically to Canada and will there be any duties?
We use fedex and should take on average 7-10 days to reach destination.
Price should be USD64 (TBC) + shipping + your local taxes.
Not sure what's CA tax/tariff rate and if there is only tax above certain value. Check your gov page : https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/import/postal-postale/dtytx-drttx-eng.html
Looks like 5-13% depending on which province.

Please check our website about prices and terms & conditions.

If the product is fully made in the US, it should be duties free if I'm not mistaken. Just wondering about that. Is it made in USA?

As Aquanaut seems to perform fine, I am announcing launch date to be 1 Oct 2020 ? ? Those who miss the early order can go to www.nouvolo.com to purchase from this date.
I searched a bit and couldn't seem to find confirmation, but are the AMD / Intel plates going to be available for purchase as add-ons in case I end up doing a platform switch sometime down the line?

Would it add too much logistics complexity to offer a “both” sku? I.e. there would be no option to buy only the plate/screws, but one could buy the block + both plates/screw sets as a single transaction? I’m guessing a lot of people might be willing to pay an extra $10 to have both “just in case” (and hopefully increase your margin in the process)

Nouvolo is an undercover plant for AMD, boys! Now I'm definitely going Ryzen so I don't need to swap pumps :p

Hilarious jokes aside, totally understood. Thanks for confirming!

My x570 mobo supports intel mounting so it might be possible to purchase the intel version for some of yall.
I would just check your mobo's manual.

Now that's it's confirmed to fit 3 slot mode in T1, I can order this beauty! Is there a specific time in the day when the orders will open?

Here are some pictures showing motherboard clearance with the Strix X570-I. There's about 5mm between the heatsink and the water block

Could you please list all the fittings that were used. Most of all I am interested in what Koolance QDC fittings are used here, for what are the diameter of soft tubing.

While waiting for the site to allow for orders, I came up with a question (suggestion?) for you, @Nouvolo:

I can't see if this has been said explicitly, but the cold plate looks to be entirely CNCed, including the microfins. Have you looked into getting the cold plate skived instead? I'm curious as to the reasoning behind going with a CNCed solution - is it because of accessibility, price, or performance? A lot (if not most) great water cooling cold plates seem to have skived microfins. Would that be a possible change for a future revision? At least on paper, skiving allows for thinner and denser fins, i.e. more surface area without significantly increased flow restriction.
