How many passes for mem test?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just testing my memory after all these restart issues, and after setting it to the fail safe defaults, I have not had a shut down after restart issue since then and am just testing the memory. How many passes is considered good? Thanks!

I do two passes in memtest 86+, any big issues should be noticeable in one though.

I have always considered 1 pass safe as all the errors I have seen came up almost immediately,or within half way through the first pass.

Yep, one pass will work for 99%, but I have had errors come out in the second pass that didn't in the first, so I just recommend two now.
