I would just buy some RAM sinks, or an Arctic Silencer. It would be too much trouble to cut up a heat sink for your RAM. But if you did decide to do it, you could use thermal tape to hold it in place.
What I have read elsewhere (before I knew about the site) has said the RAM sinks are really not necessary as long as you have a good GPU HS. The heat that builds up in the chips is more residual from thermal transfer from the GPU through the PCB. Focus on the GPU and you will be fine.
