Story:
I had a problem with my ram overheating and causing lockups on my laptop. I purchased another case containing the laptop memory case cover and began my mod. I first traced the exact location using a clear celophane cd sleeve and then transfered this to my cover. After 20 minutes of getting nowhere i decided to just use a soldering iron to cut the rough shape out then trim it as needed. Eventually i made a perfect hole and attached the ramsinks from a video cooler kit to the ram chips using thermal epoxy. The ram stays relatively cool now, no more lockups. I have more pictures of the process if interested. And yes the ram clears the ground when the little feet are flipped up

3/5 from mee too. I really like the mod and it's a very good idea. Functional and good looking. I'd give you a higher score if not for the simplicity. keep it up guy.
