DRAM will also fade out, so you have to act fast, how fast depends on temperature - note the coolant spray used in the video.

Modern Windows apps also should store passwords etc in secure storage provided by the OS, which is encrypted.

Windows 10 also compresses the RAM pages, which I guess was disabled to make this attack easier.
