this would be cool for motherboards
It would be really cool is passmark software would license out their memtest86 software to be incorporated into a motherboard's bios to run from instead of having to create a bootable drive. Since all motherboards need ram (duh?), why not? Since it would be licenses on such a high volume, passmark wouldn't have to charge so much for it's license. Also the reason why some motherboards with mainly pci-e have post code displays on their motherboards. Passmark, one of the main post code card manufacturer's along with others that I have read on the internet, can't get pci-e post cards to work. Hence why you haven't seen any pci-e post cards. Because not a lot of people can't remember every post code aside from the basics.

Re: this would be cool for motherboards
I think this would be a cool way to test memory, go into the Bios, and select mem test and the system re-boots and runs the test. That would be nice.
