Hi there,

 

I was wondering... Can you remove the heat spreaders on a Corsair Vengeance Pro? If so, is it removable like the Dominator Platinum? I was wondering so because i plan to remove them and water cool them. Either that, or can i simply put the RAM waterblock over the heat spreaders?

 

Kudos,

Well, just by looking at the picture of a stick of Vengeance Pro, it doesn't show any obvious way to remove the heat spreader. But i am confident there is a way to remove the heat spreaders.

I think usually there's a few screws somewhere you just take out and bam, or maybe it just sticks on. Idk :o

Most ram heatspreaders these days are held on with thermal glue and tension. So if you take your time and use enough force you should be able to pry them off

It's possible but you'll more than likely void your warranty.

Why not just buy the memory without heat spreaders?

Use a heat gun to loosen the thermal adhesive and use some plastic tool to pry them off, i am sure it can be done but why would you they look good.

Might want to check with Corsair if you can remove the speaders without voiding the warranty.

They don't sell the Ven Pros without heatspreaders so your only option would be to remove them and take a chance. Is the watercooling for looks? Cause I can't see getting much more performance with watercooling RAM.

 

Good luck though!

Yeah it's for good looks and maybe some extra performance.

 

And thanks, maybe i will have to switch back to Dominator Platinums, my original decision, since i can just remove the heatspreaders with an allen key.

Maybe it's just me but does vengance and dominator ram even look good without the heatspreaders? i thought that was the whole point of it's look, there is better performing ram if that's what your after.

Well, can i put a water block over the heatspreaders without removing them? If so, i can keep the cool look of the heatspreaders without voiding my warranty and also water cooling them.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but did you ever find out if this was possible?

I tried to do it once and I ended up ripping a memory chip right off.
