    Hi all,

    I recently installed a 8 gb ram by myself into my brand new 27" imac.

    However....... After I installed the ram, I realized I didn't take off the sticker that was on the ram. It's just a small sticker stating its serial number or something like that. Placed on by the manufacturer.

    I tried to take the ram out sto that I can take the sticker off, except its really stuck in there and I can't get a good grip on it to pull it.

    Will this cause a problem? I'm afraid it might burn or melt and damage hte computer/ram.

    No problem. Most of the manufactures will cancel your warranty on the RAM if you remove that sticker.

    If you had read the sticker you'd see that you did good. It says removing voids warranty so you want to leave that there.

    I just removed the sticker with the twizzer. There was 2 stickers there. The sticker I removed said "Warranty Void If Removed".


    How long is the warranty anyway?

    Until you remove the sticker.

    Beside the sticker. You shouldn't pull out the ram by grabbing on to it, you should pull on the black lip to get the modules out. That's for the mid 2011 imac at least, I don't think it changed on the new iMacs..?

    I mean RAM gets warm 40-60 degrees C, but far from 231c to ignite paper.
