I accidently broke one clip off, stopped to ponder and came up with a what i think is a nice solution:
 
I went on and broke off the other clip. By doing so, i managed to create an openclear path between both logic board screws to the right and left of the ram. then i went and found a thin plastic piece, which i cut into the correct rectangle size and drilled a couple of holes, one on each side.[br]
