P95 small FFTS mainly test your CPU Any errors, crashes here are usually due to insifficent vcore (CPU volts)

Large FFTS mainly test RAM. Any errors, crashes here are usually RAM related.

Blend (Torture Test) tests both CPU and RAM. When running Blend, you should select 'round of error checking' in the Advanced menu.

P95 ideally needs to be run 8-12hrs. Just like memtest, 1 - 2 hours is insufficient.

Is there not any nice and easy progs just for mem which i do not have to to burn to disk etc, which just run easily and will test for hours, like say 10 hours to 15 hours No problem.

Memtest is the only test I will recommend, it is well worth burning to disc and keeping for future use. It is very easy to burn the CD. If you don't have a burning probgram, d/l the free Imgburn, it is easy to use, and you will have no problems. A Guy

Memtest is the only memory test worth using. Windows has a built in one, but quite frankly it's crap and not worth the time of day.

You don't have to burn a disc. You can install it on a bootable flash drive if you have one.

As for ease of use - you couldn't get much simpler. It boots and it runs. You don't even have to touch it if you don't want to.

Aside from the RAM testing components in stress testers, there just aren't any decent installable memory testers worth using.

That's why memtest is still the no.1 recommended stand alone memory tester.

I hate to say it, but there's just no getting around the fact that memtest is THE best memory tester
