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 so, i managed to create an open 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 in the correct rectangle size and drilled a couple of holes, one on each side.[br]

-I then seated the ram in, pushed it down with the plastic rectangle, and screwed in the logic board screws to stiffly hold the ram from not jumping out.
-I did have to use the longer fan screws since the originals in those places were too short for the added plastic width.[br]

-i used the shorter ones on the fan instead.

-It works… and it’s pretty easy to do with a simple ruler, exacto knife, and a heated nail… (or more sophisticated tools if you got them).
