Yes, you can touch it while its running... just make sure that you ground yourself first, so you dont fry anything with static buildup. Although, if you're running with stock voltage for your ram, then I doubt that heat is going to be an issue, as usually its only when the ram is over-volted, that things get hot.

Orthos does well, but I would still use memtest, as it is a dedicated memory testing program... and it does its job dang well.

Well said Logan. If your ram has heat spreaders then You can touch the heat spreaders to feel for heat. Don't forget to hold onto the chassis for grounding before touching anything inside your case and if the ram does not have heat spreaders avoid touching anything like the metal leads on the ic chips. Just be careful you'll be fine. Memtest86+ will test your memory pretty darn good. Only problem with memtest is usually you use it from a dos screen and not with in windows so basically you have a period of time you don't get to use the rig. I say set it up to run memtest when you will not be using the computer.

Great post. +rep (especially for clarifying about touching the heat spreaders vs the IC's)

To keep from "cluttering" the official thread, we're now having our own little party HERE, for those of you that are interested.
