    Hey there

    A monitoring software (Intel Active Monitor) tells me that the "system zone 2" is too hot (above 50c)

    I checked @ Intel.com where is the system zone 2 is placed, and thats the area where the RAM is sitting.

    Can temp of 48-55 c ruin my RAM?

    ramsinks, the best option. make sure there is not a build up of dust on the ram either.
