memory causing computer to overheat?


Recommended Posts



I just installed 1 GB of corsair memory. previously my computer had 512 MB of RAM (1 DIMM), so now it has 1.5 GB.


Ever since I installed added the new memory, I've noticed that my computer gets much, much hotter than it did before I added the additional memory. It very quickly (i.e. within 5 min of start-up) becomes hot enough to be very uncomfortable to the touch. Previously, my computer would get warm (only after being on for many hours, though) but not hot.


Is it normal for added memory modules to cause a computer get a lot hotter, or is there a problem with my memory module? Please let me know what I can do to solve this heat issue (i.e. whether I should return the memory module, or do something else).
