Question Overheating with more Memory?

I have an HP with 128mb of RAM, it can support up to 1GB. If i were to put 1GB of RAM into my computer would i need another cooling fan or would it run fine the way it is? Thanx for the help.

I'm not very experienced with cooling and such, but I upgraded my PC from 512mb RAM to 768mb RAM and I have had no heating problems since, so everything seems fine.

I would first put in the RAM, then if you have any heating problems (you shouldnt as far as i know), buy an extra fan to put in.

Did your computer come with 512mb RAM standard or did you upgrade it once before?
