It will be just fine though, all these giant heat-spreaders on ram are ridiculous really, given how cool they run.

Yeah the OCD part of it has been on my mind. I did consider just trimming the cooler slightly so the RAM fit in snugly but the cost implication of replacing RAM rather than cooler put a stop to that. I shall have to put some thought into it when I get home.

DOne. Very carefully removed the heatsink completely. It was held on with what looked like the tape you would stick your numberplate onto a car with! So atleast no if ever the RAM gets changed I can pop the sink back on biggrin.gif Feels good to have 4 sticks instead of the 3 although I havent seen any noticeable increase, but it's just good to know. You know!

Sticks will run fine with out that piece of aluminum corsair puts on those vengeance sticks. I wouldn't worry one bit about them. But good luck if you ever want to put the spreader back on. That glue on them is pretty much one time use. I took the heat spreaders of a kit I had to see what IC's they used and wasn't able to get it to stick again.

I straightened the locking tabs on each end of the Vengeance stick, then separated the two sides of the heat sink by inserting a small screwdriver at the ends. One side popped free from the stick, but the other side is still stuck on, and it's quite secure. For those who have already done this job, how did you free the stick from the side of the heatsink that did not come free when you separated it? I don't want to damage the RAM.

Hmm, I think I might just dremel the tops off of mine.
