To my knowledge the answer is no. Ram(sdram, ddr, ddrII, rdram) loses all stored data when power is lost.

That is not a good idea. Where did this method come from,I have never heard of such a thing and doing it would probably render the motherboard useless.
That wouldn't work either, power would be lost as soon as you removed the ram and you would most likely damage the ram and the motherboard. Ram is not hot-swappable.
