  1. I recently received 2 one gig ram sticks.
    However.. the cooling metal casing is too bulky to fit into my computer slots.
    the ram is corsair - CM2X1024-6400C5DHX
    Is it possible to remove the metal casing?

    Hello there, I found this simple guide to removing the Heatspreaders on RAM modules.

    It is important to note that removing the heatspreader will most probably void the warranty of the RAM.
