  • Understanding Addresses and Errors

    Hi everyone. I didn't know there was a forum for memtest!
    So I've been using memtest for a while, but never quite understood what the addresses, expected, and actual results with errors mean. I might be asking a dumb question, but is there some way to determine what stick of many is the bad stick from this information? I have boxes full of ram I need to test and only one board for testing. I have to do them one by one if a set has errors. Is there any way I can optimize this by knowing how the errors and addresses work?
    thanks fellas

    Short answer is no.
    The mapping of addresses to particular memory sticks is complex, changes per CPU and generally keep secret by Intel.
