Memtest for ivy bridge

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The last version of memtest had an update early last year for sandy bridge.

Should I even bother testing my memory with memtest on my ivy bridge platform? I always do a prime custom blend full loop, but need to fine tune my memory settings. Prime takes too long.

Memtest86 won't support it, but Memtest86+ might yield some positive results.

I'm having some weird behaviour with this version of Memtest86. I'm on Ivy Bridge.

First Run

Memtest ran for 2 passes without errors (4 hours 11 minutes) - http://itstar.co.uk/Memtest86/1st%20run%20-%20before%20problem.jpg
Then suddenly, millions of never ending errors - http://itstar.co.uk/Memtest86/1st%20run%20-%20problem.jpg

Second Run

I restarted the PC and ran again. This time it ran for 5 passes without errors (10 hours 27 minutes) - http://itstar.co.uk/Memtest86/2st%20run%20-%20before%20problem.jpg
Then, within 30 minutes or so, it got 3 errors - http://itstar.co.uk/Memtest86/2st%20run%20-%20after%20problem.jpg

I restarted the PC at this stage.

Seems kind of strange :/ - Maybe there is some intermittent issue with the power supply? I have been experiencing random reboots on my Hackintosh every few days or so and not been able to figure out what is causing them.

I built the system myself and all the components are comparably expensive and around a month old.

Anyone has any ideas what could be causing this strange behaviour?
