I did ship one of the beta units to Gucks tv in Germany, and I think it was $41, but that was in a small flat rate box, the unit barley fit inside. I have not ordered the packaging yet. I will try shrink the box I am using to see if I can lower the shipping on the international orders.I am in Germany, shipping is $70, priority shipping $85. Maybe it is just that expensive, don't know where it ships from. Does that include taxes and customs?
The pump orientation is not critical, a centrifugal pump can operate in any orientation after it is primed. However for bleeding purposes the outlet/inlet in the up direction will be easier. On my Z590-I board there is room between the VRM heatsink for a cable, that is were I am running mine now. the logo orientation is set at this point, all the heatsinks are already machined.@Alloy Craft When mounted vertically, what is the best orientation for the unit? I assume inlet and outlet are best at the top or facing right so the outlet is at the top still.
Also, is there room for the pump cable on your Z590-I board when the pump heatsink opening is facing the VRM heatsink? Is the logo orientation set, in relation to the cable opening, for production?
State of the world at the moment, unfortunately.Nice to see the LOBO hitting the market. But damn, the shipping is mad expensive.
Thanks Kalhin, I appreciate it.
I already ordered and payed, shipped to Germany.Thanks Kalhin, I appreciate it.
Notes on Shipping.
1. I am offering free shipping in the continental USA so if you placed and order inside the USA, you will be receiving a shipping refund when I ship these.
2. Box size has been reduced slightly, you may want to run through the check out again to see if shipping cost has improved.
3. I have added a lower cost option for international shipping. First class international package, it is very slow but is cost effective.
4. If you are outside of the USA you might want to try one of two things to help with shipping cost. 1. Check with freight forwarders in the USA to see if they can help since my shipping to them would be free. 2. If you can find another person locally that wants a LOBO, you can split the shipping cost. Cost to ship 2 units in one box is just slightly more than shipping one.
The emitter can be used with acrylic and plastic pump housings to help keep the pump cool. It will not conduct any heat into the coolant unless you are using a solid metal pump housing. If using with a solid metal pump housing it should offer the highest level of pump cooling.Hi all, great to see that this has now gone into pre-orders! I don't have a pump in mind for this as yet, would the emitter heatsink be useful to allow heat from any pump to be emitted as well as dumped into the coolant, or is it more for a specific use case of acetal/acrylic?
