Description

Inspired by: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans, Gundam frame Barbatos. The build itself is great and I couldn't be happier with what I've got. I ran into a couple issues with the cooler because it is a little larger and had size issues with the fans and ram. Solvable by removing one fan, but a little annoying. I use this for gaming and general use.

Update: fixed cooler orientation, added new photos.

Is it possible to orient the D15 from front to back? I'd bet you're going to get higher temps (and more limited flow) drawing air from the backside of the GPU vs. front (fresh) air intake.

the fans wouldn't fit the other way with the ram. i tried multiple orientations and it was the only frustrating thing.

Ya, id also mount the cooler in the correct orientation. Why did you mount it that way ?

I love Gundam, especially the UC timeline.

Clean your room son ! lol

The ram conflicted with the cooler when orientated the correct way or else it would be, and thanks man, i was going to put one inside but the gpu was a little too long, and I'm moving end of the month lol.

I looked up some other builds with your ram and cooler, just use the fan in the middle and you can put the cooler the correct way. 2 vs 1 fan is only like a 3 degrees difference tops.

Ok, I'll give it a look over. I've never changed a cooler before because this is my first PC, but I just have to re apply the thermal paste again right?

Ya, get some iso alcohol and coffee filter or anything that is lint free and clean the cpu and the heatsink of the old paste. Then just reapply the paste and put the heat sink on.

Before you put the paste on, try doing a dry mount so you have a better feel for mounting it. So when you apply the paste you already have a good feel of how everything is going to go down.
