We will sell a different version of Ascendacy in the future, I just happen to have most of the prototype boards from the first gen with me :D

Pity, it seems like a great product that could have the potential to utterly destroy other solutions on the market. Just wish more info would come about and consumers could actually buy into it ^_^

We want to launch just as badly as you guys want it! This product has been around since the first day I was hired... nearly 3 years ago :(

So, in other words, Tiborr and the rest of the crew are busting their asses to not only work on the product when able to, but also do their best to not provide proof he's actually a wizard. Y'know, the spell casting type since he seems capable of pulling a number of things out of thin air (in a good way)

Great stuff, and I cannot wait to see the result. This MKII I want so badly.

But I need the ascendancy... In black PCB :'(

Either PCIe slot or 6-pin PCIe power connector, USB connectivity (no waste of PCIe signal lanes).
Availability: January 2016. Pricing? Very competitive!



We will do a short white-up on the product next week.

I definitely like the PCI format, and don't understand people whining about cables going across the motherboard. Everyone knows that most modders will find a way to make the cables combed and appear perfect like the motherboard and GPU cables.

No way would I ever use it in one of the PCIe slots. All the fans and sensors running to it are going to look messy. I see no way around that. Thankfully it can be powered w/ a 6-pin connector instead.

Guys. I'm almost done. Finishing up the tubing this week, here are some photos:

I had to clean up the blocks and backplates... coolant dried in them and were getting a little dirty:
