The tool used for testing and stress-testing RAM is Memtest86+. Memtest86+ detects defects and errors by attempting to verify that the RAM accepts and correctly retains arbitrary patterns of data. In addition it attempts to detect errors in memory addressing, individual memory bits, and other memory anomalies.
