RAM heat differences - Mac Portable

I have a G3 Powerbook 400Mhz (Lombard series) and have been checking the temperature of it. I had 64MB of RAM (SO DIMM, 144 pin) in it and the temperature ranged while idle around 129F. I installed 128MB more of RAM and the temperature went up to around ~140-150F. My question, is this usual, or is the 128MB chip too hot? thanks! sean...

    Default RAM heat differences

    I have a G3 Powerbook 400Mhz (Lombard series) and have been checking
    the temperature of it. I had 64MB of RAM (SO DIMM, 144 pin) in it and
    the temperature ranged while idle around 129F. I installed 128MB more
    of RAM and the temperature went up to around ~140-150F. My question,

    The temperature increase is probably because the CPU is spending more
    time actually crunching and less time waiting for data that got paged
    out to disk.
