How to burn my RAM? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Oh dang this has me drooling.

I bought my Thermalright RAM coolers not too long ago but haven't put 'em on since screwing up my G. Skill sticks. Was there any special way you pulled off the stock heatspreaders. When I took mine off for the first time it was tough because they were pretty sticky. Hair dryer maybe? Anyway, as usualy the pics look good.

Man, .. you need to mount those HR-07's with much haste.

Those are even better than these Thermaltakes; Legion hardware did a good review of them if you care to search for it ..

My mushkin heatspreaders slid right off ... a little tension there, but nothing gooey or anything. They just had thin pads on them similar to those I installed on the Thermaltakes.

The heatpipe installation involved quite a bit of thermal compound, but the main heatspreader just used pads.

@ Transonic ...

Hey ... my mushkin ram didn't have adhesive pads; therefore, the stock heatspreaders very easily and quite literally just 'slid off' the RAM sticks.

Some others who have replied to my review have claimed that their Gskill RAM had very strong adhesive ...

..

Hair dryer could work ... or, maybe putting the sticks in the freezer for an hour or two ... then try and pop the spreaders off once everything is frozen.

Run the RAM for one month doing Stanford folding. If it survives that, it's solid.
