@Oubadah i don't know with the ballistix, but heatgunning my vengeance with a little training made my two and a half last sticks out of four completely clean smile.gif just remember to dont touch the metal after its heated, it hurts tongue.gif

as to the force, i didnt have any problems the last time i installed some ballistix but if you want to be overly safe you could put the force on the end tips on the sticks and not the heatsinks rolleyes.gif

How easy and how clean do the heat sinks come off? I'm extremely wary of sinks that are just stuck on with double sided tape. There's no shortage of people on the internet that have pulled off chips while trying to remove these. Heating can make a mess too, with the adhesive residue left over everything.

EDIT: I don't even like that design from a practical standpoint. The heatsinks are just suck onto the chips, and you'd be pushing down on those heatsinks when installing the RAM, transferring all the force through the solder points - isn't that just asking for trouble?

One guy at Hardforum did it:

What chips do these low profiles use anyways? Size looks to be the same as the Samsung Miracle RAM.

I bought 2X4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport XT @ 1600 mhz about 9ish months ago? They've been running like a champ. I also bought 4X4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport XT @ 1866mhz about 7ish months ago for my other rig and they also have been running like a champ. I tested both kits on 3 different Intel systems and 2 different AMD systems, had not experienced any problems at all.

My 2 x 4GB Ballistix kit rocks all day long at 2133 Mhz 9-11-9 @ 1.6 V - They run stock at 1600 Cl 8 @ 1.5 V! thumb.gif
