questions about stress testing ram

@dreamcast4599 Memtest is good, I'm saying not to solely rely on it. Your infinity fabric will also overclock with the memory if the option remains on automatic (aside from using PBO).

Usually memtest86 is the way to go 

Just set the OC profile and run it for a while 


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying 

 

@TofuHaroto so I can see your post 

 

 

I seek to max the letter count on every ... Single ... Site 

only the bravest are capable of such mission

I've seen P95 and OCCT fail where memtest passes. ;)

Test multiple. OCCT is good for variance and variety. Can test heavy load, large data set and cpu at the same time. 

Memtest just tests the memory.

Pbo sets an oc for your cpu

Usually it's a modest OC nothing too much but If you want to be sure you can run stress tests like cinebench just to make sure
