What's the best way to test a memory overclock?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been playing with this 4x4G set of 2133 memory from Kingston (while the 2400 is doing an rma mad.gif) and poped this kit to 2400 at 1.625V 12-13-12. booted fine. any recommendations for testing the ram beyond using memtest?

This is an very good alternative way to test ram stability in windows Memtest For 16gb open 9 or 10 tabs x 1500mb each and let it run minimum till 300%. If its unstable it will give you an error.

worked great - used 6 instances for 1 cycle, + IBT @ 90% ram, + p95 @50% ram+ wimdows memory diagnostic. = 2400 11-13-13-33@1.65V

will run overnight to be sure, but it looks good.
