Word of warning

Morning guys!

Right, any of you people have Corsair ram? Their heatspreaders seem to be completely stuck on.

With no screws or anything to get them apart.

If you want to put 3rd party ramsinks on then don't bother. Look what happens:



They are stuck on with super glue.. I swear.

Oh well, more ram it is then!

Yep I've done that on a few memory kits. What you need to do is heat the heatspreaders with a blowtorch so the glue loosens up.

Yeah you get some great coloured flames if you blowtorch the pins.
