Most heatsinks on RAM are usually held down with some glue so using an item to heat it up such as a blow dryer or similar should loosen the adhesive to allow you to remove it. I assume you are looking to do it to your Crucial Ballistix? 

 

here is a decent tutorial video.

It can be done on most modules with a 'universal' heatsink, and sometimes waterblocks for memory in certain cases. I don't know any tutorials or anything off-hand, as it's pretty rare as far as I know.
