Dropping ram?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i may be in a paranoid moment as i just sold my build for a new build, and while taking it out of the old build. i put it back into the original plastic casing and i put it on top of a computer case that was about 2 feet high and while i was rummagin around it took a slight little fall off the case, well i dont have computer to test in atm so i THINK its fine as it has heatsinks? but it was also in the plastic case. But i know im probably being paranoid lol. Isnt ram the same as SSD's? as in it it can withstand lots of G's idk. Easy question, just please tell me like if anything can happen? i will be running memtest 86+ and if that passes then i should have nothing to worry bout right?

thanks in advance

Yeah, unless you literally broke something off, it'll be fine smile.gif

You should be fine. I am on some borrowed ram right now and I was testing 2 stick vs 3 stick configuration when my two year old decided to pick up the third stick without me noticing. I saw him with it about a 1/2 an hour after it went missing, and when I asked for it back he threw it across the room on the tile floor! When I picked it up it was covered in what I assume was toddler slobber and crumbs and had scratches on one side. These sticks came out of a newer mac, and did not come with a heatsink. I cleaned it up best I could, and took a hair dryer to it, popped it in and it runs just fine. I doubt a two foot fall in a padded pack has done ANY damage to your memory module. My two year old cant even kill one.
