So I just replaced my Corsair DDR3 1600 with some Crucial ram and the difference is night and day. The Corsair ram would not get good speed and timings and the heatsinks were huge. Anyway, I always hear about people trying to remove heatsinks and since I no longer had any use for it I decided to try it. Completely ripped the chips right off of the board. The board itself was larger than normal and had a copper strip at the top where the heatsink was glued on even more. So since I was happy to see the crappy Corsair ram go I just made it into a board with no chips and some aluminum that I will recycle. Glad to see that stuff go and my computer is way happier with the new stuff.
