How do you find the machine/kit number?
I would really like to know and use it's number.

The first 500 was version 383 (RS red printed parts), the later was named ver. 384

..I think the secret is getting the cooling block in the right place..

Agreed...and a lot of cooling added to the cooling block

The downside is that the low mounted fan do not leave much space to ad proper cooling to the print but one can fix that by adding another cooling block on top of the original one (and that also ads more thermal mass to the cooling block) - its a prototype so looks a bit messy, and prolly better to make the cooling block as one part, but screwed together with heat paste between it works just fine

The treads are in the lower part, upper part is free-bored, so a really easy mod to make if one has an extra cooling block

BTW, the centrifugal blower used is a Delta Electronic BUB0512HB DC12 0.24A, moves a lot of air

...and using reasonable retraction settings.

I retract 10.0mm at 60mm/sec in the end script and it do not give me any trouble

I was using something similar with the stock 0.5 nozzle in a quickset hot end but now I use a 0.3 nozzle and have been able to reduce it to 2.6 mm but slower at 30 mm/s for PLA. I find ABS needs a bit more retraction at about 5 mm With the quickset hot end if the cooling block is slightly above or below the shoulder it will jam with very large retraction settings.
