Best program to test for faulty memory - I keep getting memory errors

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A few weeks ago I got 16GB of Corsair RAM to replace the 8GB I had.
Originally I had both sets in and that caused all sorts of problems when trying to run at the 3200Mhz (which both are rated at). After advice on here I removed the original 8GB of RAM (the 8GB never caused any issue even when over clocked to 3600Mhz).  This advice did make the computer more stable but it just delays how long it takes before I get a bluescreen playing games.

 

The Minidump file errors usually gives the errors as Memory Allocation Error and Page File does not match Memory.


I've deleted the pagefile and recreated it but I've still had issues.

Is there a memory test application which use to find if there is an error.  I've used one which basically filled the ram, empties it and repeats but that found nothing and I doubt it is checking what comes out of the ram is what was put in.

Thanks

Industry standard is MemTest86+

If your RAM is bad, it *will* find errors

This is what I was going to suggest.

 

download it and stick it on a bootable USB and then boot into it. Let’s it in the full test took about 2-4 hours for me. Did 4 passes had 0 errors
