I am picking up a 5,1 cMP 3.2g quad core with 4x2g ram. I have a line on 8x3g ddr3 1066 ECC ram without heat spreaders. Will the 4x2g spreaders transfer to the 3x8g or are the heat spreaders even needed? Thanks for looking folks!.

Unlikely needed if your fans are blowing

I once tried to transplant heat spreaders from one stick of RAM to another. It was not worth the effort, believe me.
