My heatsink is in the way of my RAM

Is there anyway to remove my RAM without taking off my heat sink? I've never actually tried to take out the RAM so i'm not sure how much room I need to even remove it. My main concern is adding new RAM. Its kinda hard to see because of the angle I took the picture, but the heat sink is barley in the way. Anyway, I plan on upgrading to a liquid cooling system in the future so if all else fails I will just upgrade then. Thanks!

    It looks like you have room to remove , just be careful.
  2. Shut down the system and physically give it a try. It wont take more than 2 minutes. Start with the furthest ram stick to get the feel of how they come out. Just push down on those black tabs on each end and the memory should be able to lift right up.
