do you suspect you have errors? If your testing for memory stability with a OC memtest is useless. If your looking for bad ram then memtest will work. Or you can use vistas built in memtest and run that on boot up

is your memory past its rated speed? If not then look else where

I disagree with that. ALWAYS memtest the hell out of your memory.

I see more bad ram than anything else in my store and we're talking all makes and models.


I typically use Nero to burn the iso that the MS memtest program makes.
