Best memory benchmarking tools?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am trying to figure out the best way to do memory benchmarking. Hopefully we can start a new memory benchmarking thread if we can agree on how the testing should be done.
What do you think is the best way of doing memory benchmarking? Are most of you still using Sisoft Sandra lite and Everest home ed. for bandwith testing? What is the current versions used?
What about memory stability testing? Is memtest86 OK, or is it nessesary to use a system stability test like SuperPI or Prime95 as well?
Please come with suggestions and tell me how you do memory testing.

Are you looking for stability testing or for the best performance tests? This could be very involved, if you are looking for out right bench grunt when timings come into play heavily then Super PI is a great one with noticeable differences. Of cource CPU performance is going to impact heavily as-well. Mem 86 is great for stability also.

Best memory performance on a stable overclock. Benchmarking programs much depending on CPU performance is no good, except for stability testing.
The purpose is to find out how well different memory modules overclocks. I have been missing this kind of information when I have been looking for memory and had to read a lot of reviews on the net to be able to compare different memory types.
