I like OCCT for that personally. But there's a few programs out there everyone has preference to.

Same, I also like OCCT

I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast. I don't know everything.

HGST Ultrastar: The last HDD you'll ever need to buy (and the one I always recommend).

Schrödinger's CPU: The Q9650. Is it irrelevant? Is it not?

I usually do a combination of Linpack Xtreme, HCI Memtest, and Memtest86, though there are certainly others like Memtest5 that are just as valid a choice as those. All of them have their pros and cons, I've had RAM OCs that passed one and failed another pretty consistently, and it varies which one is which. You can't just rely on one of them to say whether your RAM gives errors or not, you have to test in multiple different programs to know whether it's stable or not.

I do gaming on top of stress testing cause stress testing = boring AF lol. At least for me, that's where the stability matters even if OCCT throws an error after 1.5 hours. (I don't usually game for that period of time personally, just using it as an example.)

Oh yeah, stress testing isnt fun, though I also don't like games crashing in the middle of a mission, and that would annoy me more than just letting a stress test go overnight. 

 

Though it is a good note to add you do want to throw GPU heat into the equation, running Furmark while one of those tests is running will help make sure that you won't be running into temp issues on the memory.

I normally use Anta Extreme, or Absolute, but I figured I would try this one.

 

Was shaking out the cobwebs on my 5600X system, I haven't really pushed this ram too much.
