    I bought these:
    DDR DDR2 RAM Cooler Heat Sink Heatsink f RAM VGA RHS-03 | eBay
    And
    Heat Sink SD RAM For DDR DDR2 DDR3 Memory MC-200 Copper | eBay

    They were a bit too tall to be put on the CPU heatpipe without creating conflicts with case, which is why I recommended ones with a height around 3mm. And as for a tutorial, sorry, but I'm not disassembling it again... Doing it twice is already bad enough.

    Haha okay thank you. How do we go about applying these? Thermal paste?

    I applied those kind of ramsinks on my desktop GPU.. they usually just have an adhesive backing that you peel off and stick on directly, i believe the adhesive pads are made to do what thermal compound does?.. not sure on that but when i did them it didn't require thermal compound

    It's that simple? So the compound won't melt or anything?

    Yup, just remove the sticker and stick it on. Make sure you press on it for a little bit, or it'll fall off. Also, if you make a mistake, just apply force to it by the sides and it'll fall off.

    The compound will melt if you heat it up to a really high temp(had my dad grind them down with a machine and one's compound melted).

    Edit:
    Played DA:O.
    Settings: High with 4xAA
    Max:60(cutscene), 45(actual gameplay)

    Wait, What's DA: O?

    EDIT: just kidding. Dragon Age: Origins. Got it.
    When did you get 22fps?

    I got it during battle. Lowering the AA to 2x gave me better FPS, but I didn't measure. But I can definitely tell it's a lot smoother, while looking pretty similar, so probably 30+ with 2x.

    So I spent a few hours repasting. This was by far a lot more difficult to take apart the first time compared to my g73 the first time, but it's not so bad after that. I also played around with sticking on ram heatsinks to cpu heatsink.The results aren't that great overall. With a simple repaste, there's basically no change when I play BFBC2 at stock clocks (84C). When I play overclocked at 850/925, the temps are lower by like 6-8C lowers (88C compared to 96). With the heatsinks on the CPU, the overclocked max temps in BFBC2 dropped about 10C to 86C but at stock clocks the temps didn't change compared to the OCed temps (86C).

    Hope this helps anyone who's thinking of maybe repasting.

    In what ways was it more difficult? And how messy was the factory pasting? :I
