Ram removal PC

I have 16gb (4x4gb) Kingston RAM sticks and I noticed they get quite hot, if I were to remove two of them (2x4gb) would this affect my PC at all? would I see a difference in my PC's temperature?

I hear that having 4 sticks of RAM can be quite unstable... :s

Thanks

    4 sticks should be perfectly fine if set up correctly, removing two would just be less DRAM, temps might go down a bit, but prob not much - what mobo, cpu and model # of the DRAM
  2. If you're not seeing performance dips then I don't see a problem.

    Lots of components "get quite hot" so you'll have to clarify what you constitutes hot.

    Just keep your airflow good, cables tidy and such things.

    If you pull RAM out, your computer should still work. Of course operations might be slower

    as it doesn't have the same amount of RAM you're used to.

    And if you want to find out, you can download speccy from www.piriform.com to see which

    kind of RAM you've got, in case you don't know. Nice to see you by the way, Tradesman.
