I mean, Can Memtest be trusted to find any erros in my RAM, or can it miss things?
You can have memory related problems that Memtest86+ might never
No single test is perfect, and anyone who claims otherwise is a fool.

I do not use ECC memory and my systems have done 24-48 hours of memtest86+ many on many occasions without errors. If I ran into an error after 24 hours, I'd fix the problem.
1 or 2 errors every 10 days (240 hours), I might let slide, as that kind of error rate could be unavoidable with non-ecc memory.Edited by Blameless - 5/14/08 at 5:09pm
