I was trying to take off the ram heatsink to add the rgb one on amazon and when i heat up the ram i pulled of the side heatsink and it ripped off 2 black square chips and right away i knew i messed up is the ram stick broken? I cant put it in my system because i was starting a build and ill have to wait till tommorow. Should i buy new ram or can it be fixed

No the broken one will not work and do not ever put it in as it could cause more issues. You can use any of the memory that are good and not broken but the best solution is to get new matching pairs for the best performance/stability.
