    There are two stickers front and back. Should I just leave it there?

    removing the stickers can void the ram's warranty

    Does it matter which way the RAM goes in? Should the side with the "Crucial" sticker face upwards? Or does that not matter as long as the edge with the golden chip goes downward?

    Leave it there. It helps if you ever need to claim on the warranty for the RAM or if you want to sell it later.

    There is a slot in the edge that goes into the memory slot. It will only go in one way.

    You may get the stick in the wrong way but will then break the ram stick as the slot in the wrong place and breaks the edge where the ridge for the slot is
