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.
