    I just got new RAM and I am looking for a program to test it. What is the best to torture test and speed test.

    I went from 1GB of pc2700 to 1GB (2x512) pc3200 corsair value ram. both use dual channel.

    Memtest seems difficult to figure out how to install.

    I have had great experiences with MEMTest86. No problems using it.

    I actually don't know of any other.

    I typically run it off CD. You can download the .ISO from this page...

    http://www.memtest86.com/

    Scroll down to where it says

    ISO images suitable for creating a bootable Memtest86 CDROM
