I've installed memory before, and they were all thin green strips with lots of circuits.
Now I bought this corsair memory. It came inclosed in a metal case. I assumed the case was just packaging, but it didn't fall apart when I unpackaged it as expected.
Am I supposed to install this memory with the metal case? I've tried taking the case apart and light efforts do not prevail. I do not want to force it. But that metal case would seem awfully hot. Should I just take the screwdriver to it and rip it apart?
Here is a link to the product website:

Here are some id numbers:
Also why is this memory so expensive?
