[/QUOTE]indeed it has but I can also remove the plastic strip for the leds , turn them off and then allow the air to push through the top.
Do you know where I can find the double sided adhesive conductive tape ? I bought a 1.1mm 3m one and my dimms seem to run even hotter than before and they won’t close tight on the top of the sticks.
It should have screws for tight seal and thermal paste/pads for best cooling performance.
If you're dismantling your sticks, might as well get something like aftermarket like the EK Monarch modules or something like that. That way you can use thermal tape both sides and secure it with screws to ensure its tightened properly. I wouldn't use back the stock heatsinks if you've taken the trouble to open them up.
