Hello ladies and gentlemen, As I am now the proud owner of 8 RAM chips and a seperate PCB with another 8 RAM chips, I feel it as my duty to express to you the following: Corsair Dominators and XMS DHX modules have those nice looking heatspreaders. Say, you're the ignorant jerk I am. Say, you feel like popping those heatspreaders off. Say, you even think for a change and start at the top where it's metal on metal. Should be safe right? WRONG In the corner of my eye, I noticed the ball joints of the first chip were not connected anymore. Of course, at that moment I decided that the stick was killed anyway and pried the entire sink off just to show you guys What have we learned today? 1. XMS heatspreaders are glued. 2. Ball joints are weak. 3. I still don't know which chips are (were) on these sticks. 4. RAM without heatspreaders is safer simply because you can't kill it with stupid things like this.
