RST Pro 3 Testing and The Test System

RAM Stress Test Professional 3 PCI Express is a memory testing hardware/ firmware designed for the rigorous testing needs of memory and system manufactures, design engineers, and service professionals. R.S.T. Pro3 is a Self-Booting, Operating System Independent memory diagnostic card for exercising and validating RAM in Intel Core2 / Xeon and AMD Athlon/Opteron compatible processors. I use one here at Legit Reviews as I have found it the best way to find faulty memory modules and one of the best ways to see if an overclock is really stable or not.

I placed the RAM Stress Test Pro 3 PCI Express into the test system and let it test the memory at  2133MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings and 2.0V to see if it would detect any errors.

Corsair 2133MHz RST Pro3 Testing

Just over an hour later the test results came back showing that this 2GB memory kit was rock solid with no errors! This is very impressive for a memory kit that is running 2133MHz!

The Test System:

Image Description

All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit with Service Pack 1 installed. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. All of the modules were run in dual channel mode with a 120mm fan placed on top of them to keep them cool. The PNY GeForce GTX 280 used NVIDIA ForceWare 177.39 video card drivers and the EVGA 790i SLI Ultra motherboard used BIOS version P06, which was the most recent available when testing was done. The FSB of the processor was increased to 410MHz in order to run the memory at 1642MHz and 2135MHz, which means the overall clock frequency was 3.6GHz.
