swap the ram out for these low profile ram. they do sell 2b4g sticks. these newer ram will fit under most heat sinks so you dont lose dimm slots. also on your friends cooler make sure it has the bracket for 1155 chips. the newer heat sinks have the intel bracket with three screw positions...775..1155/1156/1333.
