    The memory in my rig has a temperature around 48 degrees celsius on full load.

    I've been searching around on the web but I couldnt seem to find any info or recommendations about temperature.

    Should I start to worry and point a fan towards my memory sticks?

    What's normal temperature of the RAM?

    Will the last several years longer if I get the temp how many degrees down?

    Thanks on forehand for any reply(y)

    I don't think 48C is anything to worry about it that's the maximum. There is a rule of thumb about semiconductors, each 10C rise in temperature reduces the life by 1/2. However, I suspect that if the temperature normally runs in the 30's and only gets to 48C under full load, the RAM will outlive you. :)

    That sounds very comforting. Thank you(y) ;)

    The reason I was starting to get worried is because after having moved the Mobo & so on (into another case) the temp raised from 2n to 3n under normal load.
