If anyone has some dead sticks of Corsair Vengeance LPX or have removed the heatsinks I'd love to buy them. Any speed any amount, so long as they are the low low profile kind.
Looking to swap out the heatsinks on my current kit.
Thanks!

Different ram types may have different package heights/sizes/positions, not absolute the heatspreader from one stick will ideally fit another.

If you just want some low-profile heat spreaders and don't care too much what they look like; Plenty of used server memory on ebay.

That type should slip over most any memory chips and still make contact.

Not much else out there though. Plenty of LPX available if you just go in as the lowest bidder and hope for the best.

Thanks for the tip!! I actually found a few Chinese sellers on ebay selling blank corsair vengeance heatsinks. Although they were a bit pricey and would take like 3 months to arrive though.
Instead I just scored 64Gb (4x16) of 2666mhz Vengeance lpx for $60! Assuming it all works I can sell the naked sticks and get a few bucks back maybe.
