  1. Hello

    I want to take my new RAM and my SSD with me on a plane. The only problem is that I read online that it gets really cold where the Baggage is kept. Someone said it would become -700°C.
    Is that true? Is it save for RAM and SSDs to be that cool? I dont want my RAM to break :(

    -700C ??? LOL!
    Won't happen, it depends but usually the cargo will no go below freezing. SSDs and RAMs will have no problem.

    -700C!? With absolute zero at -273.15°C that seems unlikely doesn't it?

    Unheated cargo holds are about 10 degrees celsius.
