Off Topic / Re: Monitors suddenly goes black

i was saying underclock, i had luck with that on my AMD FX8150 that had a very hot and hard life, when it became unstable to run it at stock clock running it under the stock speeds made it stable again, overvolting at stock clock could do the same but also could make things worse if the motherboard can't handle the power.
sorry if it is not clear, but your issues can actually point to pretty much any of the main component failing, it is why it is so hard to find the issue, just do not throw the UPS away unless you are very sure it is it :) those things often contain lead battery and so are rather bad for the environment.
and to be honest with you i do not think it will get worse, or if it does it would be very sudden if it is hardware

Thank you. I will try to make a life of it.

Well. At least we know the boards and gaskets exist now. Thatís all we know now. Oh, and we also know barely any progress has been made on the packing /QC based on the pictures. Nice. 2022 is a pipe dream at this rate

How am I supposed to read this? the MOQ is 500 and only 58 units have been sold so far?

Was also a little worried by this. However I'm sure this will pick up a lot during the last few days like any set, and if each vendor buys a good amount of extras it's doable.

Bummed this GB didn't make it.  It's crazy how different sales are this year than last year.  It's very tough to run a set right now and most people don't appreciate all the complexities that go into it.  I hope this can come back some day, the work you did on it is excellent.

Agreed, was stoked at getting this, love Green on White and vice versa sets. Hopefully it isn't doomed to be never ran like Puddsy said </3

It ran and the GB was cancelled due to low sales.
GB was pretty rushed, I feel like this was in ic for only like a month tops

ENDS TONIGHT:


Final reminder that the GB closes at Midnight CST tonight.

Now that I've been mentioned in public, i'll respond in public. To max:

You seem to have the wrong message, I don't mind that you're young and designing things, you have a lot of free time when you're young so learning a new skill is enviable. The reason why I pulled out was because of the imgur album linked in this thread, I did not want to be supplying bumpons for a project this volatile, your inexperience really shows and it is a red flag to a more veteran person in this hobby. I'm also not a big fan of the "I hate colored people" comment you made, even if it was a joke -- The moment you become a designer, (especially for a case where there is more money on the line) you are a public figure and people/vendors rely on you.

OP -

I admire your ambition and desire to dive in deep to the hobby. At this point, however, it would probably be wise to start smaller. As others have mentioned, running a buy such as this by yourself (handling logistics, finances, etc) is an incredible undertaking. Working with a vendor and supplying designs would be a great place to start. This would take away the majority of the burden from you and allow you to continue to learn. As well, familiarizing yourself further with the hobby and the ins and outs of these sorts of projects would go a long way.

Those of us who have been around for some time have seen this play out a few times, and it rarely ends well (I can't personally think of a time that it has). Please don't take this personally. It truly is in the interest of the community that you have a fondness for, and frankly for yourself (sanity, reputation, etc) as well.
Hello
I sincerely appreciate the feedback on this IC. In light of everyone's concerns, I will postpone this groupbuy indefinitely until I find a solution that is acceptable for all participants. I will find vendors who have had experience running successful past GBs and will work with them closely to ensure everything will operate smoothly.
I appreciate everyone's consideration and thank you for any advice you may have given me.
Max

This is a good start to making amends and starting right, I sincerely hope that you take your time to build up experience and integrate more into the hobby, and when you're working with a more tenured vendor and have grown as a person I truly hope that you do reach out again and we can work from there.

Thanks for the response Weaston, but I don't think this really addresses the main concerns.

-You mentioned that you were still in the process of packing, but it doesn't look like anything's actually been packed yet? (You were gathering packing materials 3 months ago in August). It doesn't look like anything has been done with the cases for nearly a year - they haven't even been taken out of the foam yet, let alone QC'd, nevermind the time/effort needed to organize it all, pack, box, label, ship, etc.

-We still don't know the status of the cerakotes even though you've been asked about them many times. You mentioned back in April that these would "100% be getting cerakoted by next month" - were they? How did they turn out? Were there any issues there?

-Have any of the received PCBs from the main order been QC'd/tested?

-You're saying there is still a backlog of address changes that still have to be processed, and the only significant change in this GB between April 2021 (when you had the cases/plates/PCBs in-hand) and today is a box of gaskets. What makes this particular point in time much different from 6+ months ago? Whatever caused these delays in the first place over a stretch of non-holiday months, are they still going to be an issue during an even busier holiday season?

I know you want to make progress on this and start shipping soon, but you've also said this many times in the past. This was a very complicated and ambitious GB from the beginning, but I think we need more transparency here so we can better manage expectations. Otherwise it's just a rinse-and-repeat of missed deadlines, months of uncertainty, more delays, unclear updates, frustrated customers, etc.
