Darkbox

First build ever, I use it for development for school/work (I'm a student-apprentice in computer science), machine learning and some gaming.

  • Though i've seen some build with the the D15, I choosed to go with the S variant to ensure better compatibility in future build updates, even with one fan missing from the standard version the temp difference isn't huge (2-3 C).

    CPU is OC at 4Ghz with 1,3mv on vcore, reaching around 100W TPU under 100% load. CPU temp stay under 67-68 C


  • The D15S was not too difficult to install, just make sure to do all steps in the right order (install MB, wire ALL cables, screw heatsink, then the fan(s).


  • Didn't thought the GPU will be that thick (noctua heatsink and GPU backplate are touching each others, but not enough to bend the GPU). I wonder how the heat transmission between CPU heatsink / GPU backplate affect CPU/GPU temp. After some short tests I didn't see any noticable difference, but I don't know for long sessions under heavy load


  • The space between the GPU fans and the blue bracket is incredibly tight, there is something like 1mm :).
    Under FureMark, GPU temp stabilizes at 80C (not cool, but not dangerous either, according to Nvidia max temp is 89C). Maybe on next update I will focus on more efficient cooling for the GPU (custom loop ?)
