Default Should i remove the sticker on the RAM?

On the RAM I bought there is this G-Skill sticker that is like a barcode that you can from a store, should I remove that sticker? Im afraid it will cause a fire in my computer if the heatsink on the ram gets hot enough.

And yes! I was able to install windows vista and not yet done though, its still trying to install everything but i got it to work .

if anything in your puter is hot enough to burst something into flame then the puter is dead already.

Just leave the sticker on, it might affect your warantee if you remove it

No that is your warranty sticker. It should "Warranty VOID if removed" leave it on lol it won't burn up.

AHHHHHHHH why does my subscore is 1? on the stupid windows vista scoring. My graphics card score is only 1. Is it because vista doesnt know my graphics card? I just installed the driver and havent restarted it yet so I can install all drivers at once

Don't take those scores seriously. Do some 3dmark benching instead.
