No. It's not normal. Are you overclocking the ram at all?

My ram is slightly underclocked so it can be synced with the FSB, but I've never noticed my ram feeling even slightly hot.

Probably a bad stick. retest the stress test on the supposed "bad stick" and see if your theory holds true.

EDIT: I've had my computer on without restart for several days now, and the ram feels mildly warm to the touch. Your ram definitely shouldn't be really hot though.
