- Why a crowdfunding campaign?
As a cooling expert, Calyos never intended to sell PCs to final customers and was mainly concentrated on cooling solutions for Data Center markets with experts as Intel, HP or Microsoft. Since we showcased our first fanless workstation, we received thousands of emails asking where and when it will be possible to buy a Calyos Fanless PC. The company is already working with market experts to offer fanless solutions to customers. But traditional distribution channels take much more time to be set up. That’s why we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign which is the best solution to market a product rapidly without changing our positioning. This campaign should also help our partners confirm the market potential for high performing fanless products and motivate them to add fanless solutions in their product portfolio. As a backer, making this campaign a success will help us change the consumer market and also open a window on a new way to cool down computers. At the same time, you will be the very first users of a high performing fanless PC.
- When do I get my NSG S0?
[EDIT] As we wanted to be compatible TR4 (Threadripper), we needed to design a new cooler block for the CPU. We hope this delay in the production won't be too long and, as soon as we know the new delivery date, we will update this section. [/EDIT] As soon as the campaign is successful, we will start manufacturing. As Calyos is already producing for B2B companies, it will be fast. Super early birds will get their NSG S0 in August.
