I just watched 9to5Mac's video of the Mantiz Venus and a big concern of his was the stock fan noise, how easy is the fan to replace; and if not, will most GPUs be fine if the fan was just removed completely? 

   

It is easy to replace. Anyway the video show prerelease product so don't worry about noise.

actually the System fan is to be controlled by MCU. Bootup PWM is around 20%, RPM will be 1200-2000. The noise is around 22dB ( measure by 1M)Full Run PWM will be 80%, RPM 4000. Noise: 44.6dB. which is less noise than the graphic card. I think unless you are too close to listen, it shouldn't be an issue for users.

Wondering the same. Can't wait for it to arrive! 

Is it possible to ship it earlier under the "evaluation" tag like you did for itsage and 9to5mac ?   Smile

If the group buy is closed, I guess I'll have to go and get one myself ;). 

On that note, the Mantiz website ( https://mymantiz.com/products/mz-02-venus) has the Venus listed as "coming soon", but it looks like you can add it to your cart and place an order. Does anyone know any details about this? E.g. Is it a pre-order that you would be placing? Is the website just out-of-date and Mantiz is shipping production versions of the Venus already?

 

Any info y'all have is welcome, and thanks for the welcome to the community, excited to be here :).

It's preorder but you pay the full price upfront. Is seems to be the best case around, so $380 + shipping is still a great value!

I am sure, than if you don't preorder, all the first batch will be sold in hours... so many people behind it. Till now, I think it is the star of the cases...

I ordered mine 2 weeks ago though the web shop and was already order number 1111... I payed the full price upfront... 

Actually there were two shipping methods (80/160), but according to John only the 80$ one is valid. Ot is international shippong with DHL woth tracking number... 

@John: can you give an estimation on weekly production volume (afer Intel certification) so that I know roughly when my order becomes available?

After Certification, production may reach to 350PCS/Per Week.

HI

We can only arrange the shipment after Product Cert. We just got the trademark & Technology license approval but the product it self is under certification, if everything goes fine, we should get a notification " OK to ship ". And for respecting the IP & agreement, we have to follow all regulations of Thunderbolt.
