    Question Does ram require that metallic silver sheet?

    When upgrading my ram, I noticed my default stock ram comes with a silver sheet stuck on both sides of it. I'm guessing it's some sort of heat solution thing. I bought new ram sticks from crucial and they don't come with this silver sheets? Do I need to stick these on one of my new RAM sticks?

    Question Kingston A400 RAM usage

    I ordered a Kingston A400 240gb DRAM-less SSD to replace my old HDD and my concern is how much system RAM is the SSD going to use as cache. I have 8 gb of system RAM and during streaming I use around 6gb of that. Should I be concerned about not having enough system memory after installing the SSD?
