How can i test RAM for errors?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello

 

As the title says , how can i test my ram 100% or at least close to it to check for errors in the hardware

I´ve came across memtest86 and memtest86+ but idk if they´re worth

If not , how can i test my ram? I´ve also used windows diagnostic and it said no errors but people say that this is not very reliable

I wanted to test since i´ve been having some exception error codes in games (0xc000005 in BO2) a bit frequent i would say

Tested the cpu through intel stress test , ran aida too and without issues

GPU is fine i guess( no artifacts or anything, no windows crashes)

So which software tool/way is the best to check for ram hardware errors?

Thank you

MemTest64 is a good one, what are your specs? might be easier to tell through incompatibility if there's any

I have a tuf b360 gaming plus br, i5 9400f, gtx 1060 6gb , 500w psu and the ram is a crucial ballistix sport 1x8gb ddr4 2666mhz

Is this memtest64 the best option? There are so many that i´m lost

The only games that did not crash were far cry 3 and battlefield 3

Played both for 40hours total

BO2 crashed 4 times in 80hours

All of my other games crashed at least once or while setting graphical options(ac4)

I don´t know if this is just bad luck , i´ve wanted to be sure that my hardware is ok if possible

Thank you

if you have windows installed, you can use windows memory diagnostic. if not, memtest86 or memtest64 will also work fine
