Woah that sounds weird to me, cuz I don't know how it would be possible for ram to make noise. As for the ram getting hot, just cool it with a small fan or a spot cool. Antec spot cool works great and I use it to cool my ram.

Hope it doesn't get static shocked.

|If it's with in specified voltages and you aren't running into any stability issues, none of this should be a problem.|
|Also.. Maybe its the RAM's powerphase cap thats making noise? Describe the sound you are hearing.|
|Better put the mobo on a cardboard piece just to be sure. Fabrics might generate some static charge.|
|A piece of cardboard, the static bag that the mobo came in, cardboard, piece of plywood, glass...|

To create the anti-static effect, the black or silver bags are slightly conductive, forming a Faraday cage around the item to be protected and preventing any localized charges from being deposited onto the protected devices as the bags are handled. If a Faraday cage bag is not sealed or closed, it offers no protection. The pink or green bags are made of low-charging material, i.e. the bag itself will not create harmful charges, but will not protect the item from electric fields. It is important that the bags only be opened at static-free workstations.
|RAM shouldn't be so hot that it hurts when you touch them..|
What's the voltages on them? You should consider getting a RAM cooler to prevent them from taking damage.
