Thanks guys for the responses. I need to read the posts closer as when it said 'removed' I read 'removed all so that there was just the RAM left". After googling, I see that you can actually slide the top portion off (as Wiz said ... but only noticable with a re-read on my side). What Grim has left is the cover after removing the fins. This is clearly shown in this review
I will be getting some green 'naked' ram and I am looking for some sort of cover so that it will fit more into my color scheme. I'll keep googling.
