Would there be any big differences in temperatures installing C7 fins parallel vs perpendicular to the ram? When fins are parallel, heat pipes are up against ram and I/O heatsink. When fins are perpendicular to the ram and I/O heatsink, they are up against ram and the I/O heatsink. In a technical standpoint, would it be better to have fins in open space, or heat pipes in open space?
