Corsair Vengeance memory paint job

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I decided to give my ram a paint job to match the black and white theme I am adopting in my case. The heat sinks were red in color originally because black was unavailable at the time I purchased them. As you can see, I've painted the front black and the back in white. It was harder than expected and the finishing isn't that great but you don't see the minor defects when it is installed in the motherboard.

Just a quick question. Did you just paint them while they were connected to the actual ram? And do you know of any disassembly of it?

I painted them by separating the two halves with just my fingers. Pry the heatsink apart on the right and left sides of the module. Once that has been done, just stick your fingers between the ram and the heatsink and pull them apart. It does require some force but take it slow because I once ripped a few ram chips from the board because they were stuck on the heatsink with too much force. Also, do not use any tools as you might damage some components on the board.

Yeah I was thinking that they would be stuck onto the heatsink. Either way I dont think I'm going to risk damaging my beloved ram and might just save up for some dominator platinum ram
Thanks for the reply tho!
