White and orange? Not sure I know what pic you're talking about? If you mean my sleeving, it's white blue and black.

Sorry. Was getting it confused with Seaminus build. Watching several of them right now.

I ordered one already but they haven't started shipping them out yet. They ran into a small design issue with the VRM block and had to redesign it just last week. But they should start shipping soon. Neat to see that its on their website now. Thanks for the heads-up.
I'm still real excited about the custom Nateman_doo block, but this mips block is going to be ready much sooner. Since I have two AE11 boards, I'll end up testing both the nateman_doo block and the mips block, and the best performer stays in the BBBB.

I've spoken to Michael at MIPS and ordered a Nickel\POM AE11 block in addition to nateman_doo's custom block. I can't seem to find it on the MIPS website though. I wasn't aware of the redesign of the MOSFET block though so thanks for the info smile.gif

I'll be comparing the two blocks as well. It will be interesting to see what sort of performance we both get but at the end of the day it may come down to fitting placement for me.

Oh and BTW great build, subscribed smile.gif

Your build log has been massively entertaining and informative. I've also been really impressed with the maturity level of most of the posters and your good sense of humor.
I thought I should also say, thanks cpachris for sharing your project, and thanks to cpachris and almost everyone else here for making this thread fun and entertaining. thumb.gifthumb.gif

Very kind words, Mainsil. Thank you and welcome to OCN. Another first time poster!

If we can get someone to beat K-State...I think we might be able to sneak in. Maybe even the championship. Will take a little bit of help though. You have to imagine the powers in charge will want the SEC and the Big 12 winners in the final game.

I've been dealing with Michael also....very helpful. Here are some additional pictures he sent me regarding fitting placement. It looks like you can fit 3/4 OD compression fittings between cards 1 and 2....so you should be able to go true 4-way SLI for those so inclined.

Nice that was my concern with that block. How much clearance do you have to the 2nd card, it looks like a backplate may not fit with those fittings?

Still debating whether to get rid of my flakey R4E when I'm done with block testing and go with the Ex11. It's a pricey upgrade given that I'm only running 580's and presumably will see no difference until I upgrade GPUs.
