I want to remove the spreaders so I can use liquid cooling. I don't know if any will work with the ram without taking it off. Provided links to the ram and the cooling module I want to use with it. I have a red/black theme in my system so if you suggest ones that will work keep that in mind.

Why do you want to liquid cool your memory? Those heat spreaders are more than enough, you can buy RAM that does not even have any.

I couldn't find any ram without spreaders with the same stats as these. I was entering the computer into the builders contest and looks are one of the things judged and liquid cooled ram adds to that. I think that cooling module will work with the spreaders adding even more cooling to it but just in case I was wondering if they can be removed. I think the little parts that go between the ram is small enough to fit since these are low profile sticks without the thick spreaders on other ones.
