I have some Ripjaws X I want to remove the heatsinks off to paint. I have a few questions, will I need some heat-resistant paint for the heatsinks? And are the thermal pads on the chips reusable, if not, where could I get some?

I'd recommend using heat-resistant paint, but honestly RAM doesn't even get hot to the touch so it shouldn't be that much of an issue. And yes you can reuse the thermal pads if you want biggrin.gif

Awesome can't wait to see how they turn out!

There are candy color paints that are transparent and look very much like anodization.

I've used single-edged razor and pry between the heatsink and chip, never between the heatsink and circuit board. A heat gun set to low temperature or a hair dryer is still a must.

Hi and thanks for the tutorial! I've been searching days for how to remove my g.skill heatsink.
I have a question about the high heat resistant paint.
Would something like this work?
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Specialty-12-oz-Specialty-High-Heat-Spray-Paint-7751830/100189390#.UaRJy0C1HTo
and do you guys think 1 can is enough to spray 4x heatsinks?
