>>52570672
Yeah don't ever actually remove ones that are already on. I tried to do it once and ripped a chip off as did a friend of mine. It just never works out well.
>>
>>52570672
Did you even heat these up?

The only "reason" they are there is for marketing.

OP is just a retard who didn't use a heat gun to loosen the adhesive before prying.
>>
>>52570672
>being this retarded
you buy them without heatspreaders on and then add a custom one if needed, idiot.
>>
>>52570804
>implying a heatgun isnt just a blowdrier
>>
>>52570836
This. Doing it backwards is asking for trouble...you could have heated the RAM stick up but still, who puts a cooler on their RAM? If you've got half decent airflow and temps inside your case there's literally no need.
>>
Nobody ever said to remove the heat sinker OP
>>
>>52570853
A heatgun gets MUCH hotter than a blowdryer. You can very easily melt solder with a heat gun whereas a blowdryer will never melt solder.
>>
>>52570804
>heat gun
You could just let the RAM heat up naturally using your pc, running some RAM-intensive software for a few minutes, the paste would become softer and it would be removed easily.
>>
>>52570672
Well, at least you can be glad that RAM prices have tanked, so you're not out a ton of money.
>>
>>52570804
A heat gun is a great way to desolder the entire bank of chips at once

welp

You are supposed to microwave it before removing it
>>
>>52570926
I saaw this thread got curious and took the heatsink off an old stick of DDR memory. One of the chips came off with the heatsink, but it's just held on with a big strip of tape. It's easy to get them off the board. Just never ever buy high profile ram it's completely pointless
>>
No harm done though. Just solder the chips back and it's good to go
>>
>>52571007
KEK. proof?

You have to heat them up with a heat gun first retard.

nobody told you to buy shitty corsair ram with meme spreaders
>>
>>52571031
Currently forcing them off the board to use as board game pieces but when I removed the plate one of the chips was stuck to the grey tape
>>
>>52571078

>>52571060
Clock boy can do it, why can't you.

Does anyone make DDR4 without cheesy looking gaymen heatspreaders?

OP here. Now that I have my noctua installed, turns out that I didnt need to make my 3x4gb ram any shorter after all. I'm an idiot who just wiped out 1/3 of his ram for no reason. Oh well, they say that 8gb is gud enuff
>>
>>52571060
Heatgun then
>>
>>52571098
Crucial or just search for value ram

The green PCM looks shit too though.
>>
>>52571123
you shouldn't have 3 sticks unless you're running x58 in any case

IOPS PLS HELPS IM NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

>>52570672
You're supposed to heat the spreader to weaken the compound you idiot.

Also, I can see that the DIMM is literally bent from the force you used to remove the spreader. You should have realised that you weren't doing it right.
>>
>>52571473
did this thing just weld itself to the cooler?

>believe the meme that heatspreaders are useless

top kek, a company wouldn't go so far as to use these types of bonding materials if it offered no advatnage.

Enjoy your random crashes unless you lower the speed/increase the timing.
"muh marketing placebo"

top kek.
>>
>>52572294
Of course they would, I mean everything just a meme for show isn't it?
>>
>>52570672
At least ddr3 ram is fairly cheap... **optimism**
>>
>>52570672
Don't buy shitty gaymen RAM and you wouldn't have to worry about fitting your cooler you sperg.
>>
>>52571087
I could have ate that anon. I only have 1.5Gbs of DDR2 667

You seen it here, folks.

just use a heat gun, you can remove all of the chips at once that way
