OK when ever my CPU Usage goes up the temp measuring my RAM goes up. When the CPU usage is around 1-5 percent the temp measuring my RAM goes down. When the CPU usage is around 50+ the temp measuring on my RAM goes up. Is this because my ram is overheating. It is running at 60 celsius when it is idle but when i start running applications ect... then temp of the RAM increases to 80 or so then decreases back to 60 when i close the applications i was running.

If only the ram gets hot when you are running programs i would not worry about it. I can barely touch the memory in my computer most of the time. If you are really worried about it you can buy ram heatsinks to help.
