PSA: Don't buy liquid cooling that has pipes to the side

#1
So I was compiling Clang with 16 threads, it ate all my 16 GiB of RAM and Linux OOM killer didn't work so I got stuck with unusable machine and had to REISUB it. So, obviously I downloaded bought more RAM. And then when I tried to install it I found that my liquid cooling was blocking one RAM slot with pipes. Well I had to mount it upside down, it cost me some cable management and aesthetics. I'm attaching the photo showing what happened. The cooler is NZXT Kraken X72 btw.

Aww, that's too bad - it really ruins the entire setup a bit. But how about this (probably you figured it out already by yourself): just turn the PC case upside down. That will fix the logo orientation.

Actually my case totally supports upside down builds. But then all that expensive RGB will be facing the wall and not me.

Well if you would turn the whole case you could avoid that. But I've got more awesome ideas. How about using some bits of black tape to make an "I" out of the "T"? Then it would read "IXZN" and no one would notice it's upside down! And you wouldn't even have to turn around anything.

Nice case btw.

I remember compiling clang on 16 GB RAM not so long ago. Shat itself as it ran out of memory using threads but then i managed to get it to build, just barely, using only one thread. Not buying RAM just because clang's complexity went through the roof.

...

You know it's a gaming PC when even the RAM has LEDs. Sorry, just had to Tongue
