[SUPER FAKE] YouTube video claims Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool can double your RAM - Real or Fake?

 Share

UPDATE: I got punked. This is super fake.

 

Video in question is this:

 

 

tl;dw:

  • optimization known as stochastic optimization aka simulated annealing, RAM handles twice as much data as normal, effectively doubling
  • Steps:
    • Checkdisk (cmd as admin, chkdsk /f, restart)
    • Run Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, restart
    • F1 to open options, choose Extended test mix (description of tests at 3:15), default cache setting, maximum or 15 pass count (0-15), wait
    • Wait, possibly for several hours, do it overnight
    • Check event viewer to see if it worked (CompletionType: Pass)
    • Check specs to see it has increased from 16.0 GB to 32.12 GB. Results may vary with quality of RAM.

 

At first, I was like cool, I'll do this tonight. Then I saw the dislike bar being quite sizeable, so I scrolled down to see the comments. A lot of them, I could tell are skeptics treating the video as satire. But when someone commented asking probably what was on many people's minds - is this real or fake, that comment received mixed replies. Some said it's plain fake, the uploader has a thing for faking things, some said it's a fake specs program displaying the RAM capacity, some said he just simply added more RAM off-camera, and some said it actually works.

 

Questions are: is this video just plain BS? If there's some truth to it, is it safe to try?

 

Update:

damn, he got me good.

As someone who has never seen his videos before, or have even heard of him, I'd have to say, he presented the video quite well then.

That's the joke :)

check out his other videos too, they're hilarious, like wrapping one ethernet cord with another to double your internet speed

Water is wet. Now you can test this by touching water with your HAND to see its wet.

138 is a good number.

It's not though

If I touch water with a stick, I'm still dry

therefore water is not wet

I'll just go ahead and blame YouTube for having the audacity to recommend that video to me out of the blue without showing his disclaimer video in his channel description first.

Wow i got fooled! xD It's nice of him to throw terms like "simulated annealing" and "stochastic optimization" which leads me to think that the method is to optimize the RAM to handle double the capacity. xD

Basically what happened to me here. However, I was a bit cautious not to believe it would actually double, but some increase might be observed.
