I've high hopes for this thingy.
If it works better (or atleast quieter) then the mxm cooler on the deskmini it Will change my next rig a lot.

After seeing the compatibility issues the Black Ridge is having on the AM4 platform, I started looking around for an alternative. That lead me to this thread.....

I hope that you are doing well and are in a place to make some progress on this cooler. I'm looking to start a new build in 2019 and would love to be a kick-start backer to a SFF cooler.

Looks like the guy I have asked to do the soldering for the prototype has lost interest and I am back to the drawing board in terms of finding an engineering firm that can put this together for me. If anyone has a contact with these sorts of capabilities in North America, let me know please.

Thanks Dondan. Also tried Celsia and they only do large scale industrial contracts :(

That's a bummer. Did they give you a minimum number? If we can reach a kick-starter goal of 500 of your heatsinks world-wide, would that be enough? 1000?

A good thought but I think the current problem is the proto. I wonder if they would wrap all of that up into one package, prototyping and manufacture? I wonder if there have been business projections similar to what you're suggesting, i.e. "I expect x number of units to sell, therefore xyz, abc"
