Is Prime95 sufficient to test RAM with OC?

Just preparing for my first overclock (primarily CPU i7-860) and need to know if Prime95 will stress the RAM enough.

Thanks guys!

  1. To answer my own question - it's probably fine but I'll use memtest86 to be sure.

    If you really want to be sure, linpack it (Intel Burn Test is a most convenient linpack wrapper).
  3. Thanks man. I'm already halfway through the OC process and have been using P95 and memtest86+ to test so I think I'll stick to that but cheers for the response!
