Haven't used it much beyond seeing what it does. Feels like memetest86 without the user control.

I'd trust memtest86 over the built memeory diagnostics. I've seen rigs pass Windows Diagnostics, and fail memtest86.

It's got three levels of testing intensity. I figure the first one is probably worthless. I haven't used the third one but the second level test takes much less time that memtest86 so surely it isn't as thorough as memtest86. But I wonder if the second level test is thorough enough to be useful when you don't have all night to let a test run?
