Solved Does it matter how you hold the ram memory? Tags: RAM Memory Components Last response: July 9, 2010 6:54 PM in Components Share hlohrum June 28, 2010 1:48:06 PM Hello, I am told to only hold the ram by its side ends. To NOT touch the chips or any connectors. Why and what do you say More about : matter hold ram memory Best solution LePhuronn June 28, 2010 2:17:42 PM As long as you're not shuffling your nylon socks over a carpet you can touch the thing anyway you want. Static is the only problem, so if you're grounded and discharged you'll be fine. Obviously don't go pawing the DIMMs unnecessarily, but it's not as fragile as you've been led to believe. I don't touch the actual connectors though in case you get skin oils or dirt on them which will mess up the connection and possibly damage the socket.
