Hey all, what's a good memtest program?

I ran prime95 last night for over 10 hours and got no errors in BLEND mode, but was wondering if there was another proggy out there to test ram.

Hey Guys. Got a couple of questions on my RAM, and this looks like the place to ask.
First off, does anybody know of incompatibility issues for Tracers (PC2-6400) and my EVGA 680i A1 revision board?
The reason I ask is one of my sticks died on me lastnight. I had them running @ 800Mhz at 4-4-4-12 on 2.2volts, just according to specs. I had been experiencing problems with games freezing up(Crysis-Quake Wars) and couldn't pin point my problem. So I turned everything back to stock settings, and still the problem persisted.
So wondering WTH the problem was, I went into BIOS just to MAKE SURE everything was on stock settings, which it was, hit F10 like always, saved, then on the Reboot I got a single long constant beep. Which is the CMOS RAM error beep code.
So I took out one of my sticks, and tried it again, still the beep. So I took out that stick, and installed the second stick, and everything booted up fine.
So I tried the other stick again, in different slots on the motherboard. Still the beep, and no POST what so ever.
So obviously, it's my RAM.
So I PM the guy I got my RAM and Mobo off of, and he proceeded to tell me that he has went through 2 sets of Tracers on this board. He RMA'd the RAM, and it happend again to him. He RMA'd the board and RAM again, and that's when I bought the set off of him. I received the board and RAM, SEALED in the factory RMA boxes.
So I'm not sure if it's just a random issues I'm having, or if I just have bad luck, or what.
Another piece of info, the seller also said he got a G.Skill low voltage(2.0v) set of DDR2-800 RAM, and it ran fine for him on a different revision of the board.
So WTH am I missing guys?
Is it the RAM, or BOARD, or a combo of both.
I should note, that I have stressed this RAM with Orthos and Prime95 for 8+hours during stress testing. RAM was set at 1200Mhz, and CPU@ 3.56Ghz, and it was stable for a month or so.
I have changed no other hardware or anything.
Any idea's or suggestions. I'm RMA'ing the set or Tracers, but I'm curious to know if the new set is gonna do the same thing...
Thanks as always guys, I'm really stuck on this one...

I purchased a set of Ballistix tracers PC28500's but they have not come in yet.. They will be going in my sig rig below.
I understand how to overclock CPU's and GPU's but have never messed with memory..

How do you over clock memory?

I have looked in my bios but there are alot of things you can change, but not sure what to change and not to mess with.

Quick question guys.How long do you test RAM in memtest to be truly stable?I'm currently running my 2 Gig PC28500 Ballistix on Memtest for 12 hours now @ 1120Mhz with no errors.I really want to go for 1200Mhz and don't wanna lose time on waiting for my current test to reach 24 hours.

from what i've been reading on some of the other posts and forums, between 8 - 12 hours is good. i'm not sure myself, so i've been doing about 10 hours. i run it about 2 hours before i got to bed in case i see some errors or something and let it run over night. by the time i get up for work, it's well past 10 hours. oh yeah, and i've been using prime95 (blend test) to do it, so i'm not sure if that's a good test to go off of.
