Best way to stress test RAM

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
long time ago I remember the best way was to do a boot before windows loaded and run memory test from floppydisc.

Is nowadays a software from windows 7 sufficient or should I boot a memory test from USB stick after BIOS has loaded?

OCCT and Prime95 blend are what I use regularly, memtest is still good!

for overclocked stability... HCI Memtest, HyperPi @ 32M.

is it recommended to also run memtest86 even if you're using hyperpi?

You can't run both at the same time but you should run memtest86+; it's a longer stress test like P95, I usually save it for the very end to make sure nothing went defective.
