I have the coolermaster V8 cpu cooler running on max @ 90 CFM but when I turned off my pc my memory was really hot to the touch so thats why I am asking if Ram can cause a pc to shutdown randomly by overheating

Unless the RAM is malfunctioning or overclocked/overvolted it should be fine especially in that case. You can always get something like the coolers that come with Corsair Dominator. Have you run memtest ?
