any easy way to quickly test memory overclocks within windows?

so with memtest86 it seems you have to create a bootable usb/cd to run the test, but looking at videos of ram overclocking some of them test with a program that runs inside windows and doesnt need to boot from a cd/usb it seems, looks like "memtest pro" in one of the videos, is this the only way or is there some other easy method to quickly test different ram overclocked timings etc?



example video here:




thanks for any help !

Yep, HCI MemTest is pretty popular around here. https://hcidesign.com/memtest/ Start up an instance of it for each thread of your processor, then take at least 90% of your RAM and split it evenly between each instance. There's also Google's stressapptest, which can be run within the linux environment built into Windows 10 if you have that installed/configured and are familiar with it.

I'd still stick to an older version of memtest86 and run modulo 100 loops due to possible Windows corruption when using PC with unstable RAM overclock which I happen to trigger 6 times :v

It isn't free unlike HCI but it is much quicker and potentially better https://www.overclock.net/forum/1805...-ram-test.html

hm, well I tried the free version of HCI memtest and it wont run because it says "could not allocate 4095mb" :S also get no option to modify how much memory to test or so, on this machine there is 2x4 gb installed and it shows up fine everywhere else like taskmanager/hwinfo type of apps etc etc, there seems to be a built-in test in windows 10 aswell if you run mdsched in start-run or search for windows memory diagnostic in search and run that,

but that also reboots pc and runs outside of windows environment, would prefer something quick and easy to test overclocks and stop as soon as there is an error for example, HCI memtest seems good but this 4095 allocation error seems weird IDK :S

Yes this is also a good one. I've tested it and HCI and it seemed to find things quicker than HCI, also much easier to get it running.

update: techpowerup memtest 64 seems to work well inside windows, also tested like 7.6 of 8gb or so which is good enough for me anyway, whenever its time to go hardcore on overclocking memory i'll run the memtest86 booting from usb option I guess, but can recommend tpu memtest64 for anyone interested ! was just looking for a way to quickly find memory errors when overclocking and this seems to work very well,


whenever I decide to really go deep into adjusting timings and stuff i'll try the memtest86 boot from usb option I think, cheers

Hi,
Not much of a quick way to test memory where amount of installed memory matters
What happened to the good old days when 16gb's was way too much
