Ok anyway it suppose to get hot. This is the closes hardware to the outside casing of the Laptop/Notebook. I use my laptop on my lap when I’m on the subway. All I do is open my leg a little bit so the ram can get some air. I don’t see why u guys can’t do that same, but the way I’m not that skinny. Just open your leg a little and you would have no problem. Unless you have real sensitive skin (girl like skin). I have a Gig of ram and it does get hot. Well this is nothing to be worried about, but if you are one of doe’s paranoid people, get a laptop cooler and this will take your worries away. I don’t now if you ever touched Desktop ram after being used in a system, they are the same way, and they get really hot. Look at it like this your GPU get as hot as 100C, so if this was on the right side of the palm rest you would feel it. Like u feel the HDD. You feel the Ram Chips more because they are right there. There is nothing between the door and the Ram chips, but the metal which is meant to take some heat off the Ram Chips.
