I meant to exchange it.

But I understand if u can't or wont : )

IMHO, it will be just fine, unless there is a metal fill in it.

But I don't think there is.

U could, but make sure that u will not kill it with the static AC.

 
On my system, the cooler was to big with 2 fans to fit with the RAM.

I could not fit it under.

So I temporary removed the fan and inserted the RAM and than re-attached the fan and it fit just right, with 1/4 of inch to spare.

So check yours if u can do anything like that.

What do you mean buy a new set of ram? If so, i cant. I guess i will just take off the whole thing :(. If they burn out well i guess i will just have to buy a new set of ram, but their aint much else i can do atm.
