Sorry, no, you're confusing a whole bunch of things which I don't have the time or inclination to get into. Let's just say that if Intel and AMD (who has the Phenom CPU not Intel) released a CPU where data could become corrupted due to electrons going off every which way, they wouldn't be able to sell it. If they did, they'd be facing lawsuits like you wouldn't believe, shareholders would likely revolt, and the entire top brass of the company would be looking for a new job. Look back to the release of the original Pentium and how much flak Intel took for a fairly minor flaw in the math coprocessor. This was back when computers were still something of an expensive toy that was more of a status symbol than anything else.
And let's just assume for a moment that your hypothesis is correct, and we take your analogy of RAM optimizers as an oil filter. Well, are these RAM optimizers not programs themselves? So shouldn't they be subject to the same gradual corruption effect as everything else? If these programs are made somehow immune to the process, why couldn't that then be applied to every other program? Your analogy falls apart, even if we look at it from the flawed perspective of your hypothesis.
What you are positing is simply not true. There is no way AMD or Intel would sell a CPU that had this kind of a problem. Same with RAM manufacturers. A few bad chips due to manufacturing issues is one thing, but you're talking a systemic failure in the product's very design. There's just no way a company would try to sell something like that, knowing of the problem beforehand, because they would be sued into oblivion.
Finally, it's either memory OR RAM, not "RAM memory". RAM memory is redundant, since they both refer to the same thing.
In any case, if anyone needs a refresher it would appear to be you. I don't have the time or inclination to get into the finer details of electrical engineering theory with you to explain exactly how you are wrong, but if you happen to be majoring in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering at a university... Might be time to consider a different major. In any case, feel free to pick up a few texts on Electrical Engineering and it shouldn't take too long to figure out that whatever your source of information for this, you didn't understand it as well as you thought you did.
You are of course free to do what you want with your own system. However, when you start posting this kind of erroneous information as some kind of divine revelation, people are going to call you on it. So maybe when several knowledgeable people tell you it's a load of crap, you should listen to them.
