This is just a tip for anyone trying to remove the heat spreader from theyre memory. I bought the corsair dominator series for my new build and was able to easily remove the spreaders. I tried heating them and it did not work at all. I actually was in a very bad mood that day due to other circumstance we wont discuse but i lost my patience and was prying to hard. We can guess what happened so lets just say dont make the same mistake! I figured well i already distroyed them so lets experiment and maybe help the next guy who gets the courage to be dumb as i. I went with the freezing method. I stick the one i broke in the freezer went outside for a smoke and came back in. Imediately tried taking a small screwdriver to it. It popped off like a wet dream. Could have not been easier. I am about to stick the other two inn have a smoke and see what happens on them. Second time around did not work at all. Moral of this story....DO NOT try removing heat spreaders from corsair memory! Unless of course you wanna be out 200 bucks like me. Think im going to try a set of mushkins and see how that goes. Hope this helps anyone thinking of trying it on corsair and let me know if you have tried it on a set of mushkin!
