Kingston Hyper X Beast DDR 3

Hello,

Kingston Hyper X Beast DDR3 RAM has really tall heat spreaders, presumably made from aluminium / alloy from the cold touch to them - but not plastic.

Is it possible to remove the heat spreaders?

Reason, is using air coolers which is preferred it is necessary to use Kingston Hyper X Savage RAM where the contours of the heat spreaders follow the lines of the RAM itself so give the impression of the RAM being low profile where it is the heat spreader itself which is lower profile so as to fit underneath any air cooler I've used so far

So removing heat spreader from RAM - How to do this? - is it possible?

heat gun and hope the glue used to attach the heatspreader to the IC isn't stronger than the solder holding the IC to the PCB.

I've got mine under Tisis and the only thing I had to do was to replace 140mm fan with one 120mm.

Heat gun, to make the alloy malleable right? - that's gonna get hot! - ouch! - Is this really the best way? - the only way?

Do the heat spreaders actually make the RAM much cooler? - All the manufactures make their products look pretty (ish) for marketing and without these you can see they all look the same! - So heat gun?

Please explain "under tisis" - Thanks

lol, no, heat gun is for the adhesive tape holding the heatspeader to the IC. heat makes the adhesive loosen.

depends on how much voltage you're shoving through the RAM if it needs a heatspeader or not but generally it's just for aesthetics. OG DDR had >2.5v shoved through them and most were bare IC and were fine.

For voltage of RAM I've not touched any voltages yet - I've just done the CPU's ! - But regular voltage is around 1.5v - 1.6v -

Under the cooler, Raijintek Tisis. These kits scale to 1.72V only, tested. Going above makes it wonky.

OMG it's an air cooler and it looks fab!!! - Is this as big as D15? - Another one I'd not heard of - If you mean 1.72_v for the v_core_ there is no chance I'll ever go there! -

I use theses Beasts since day with 140mm TR Macho, no problem, just install 2 sticks into motherboard recommended slot pair that is more far from CPU cooler. I could put them into the other pair too but it's tight since the fan is 27mm and paded from the heatsink, or one can remount fan elsewhere or use a 120mm fan.

These kits don't really scale in my experience, 1.65V stock XMP, you can push the volts where ever, I think 1.9V? Was max on my mobo, 1.8V for sure and it just does nothing of value to OC this RAM. So using tighter settings and stock 2400CL11 is the way to go. Heat isn't an issue on most RAM with air cooling. The heatsinks are mostly for aesthetic/marketing reasons and stupidly tall.

There are plenty great coolers beyond the stupid hype of overpriced Noctuas.
