Consequences of Bad RAM
Authored by: Chas on Aug 18, '08 09:45:35AM

It's true, bad RAM can cause subtle and incomprehensible problems that are difficult to diagnose. Even worse, Apple's official hardware test software is almost useless at diagnosing bad RAM. Many third-party diagnostics are similarly useless (like Tech Tool Pro).
I have found the only reliable RAM diagnostic is memtest. It found defective RAM in my Quad G5 that had passed every other diagnostic I could find.
