Default CPU and Memory testing software

Hey all,

I'm trying to diagnose some problems I'm having with my pc, and I was wondering if anyone knows any good software for testing how well the CPU and RAM are preforming?

Thanks!

Wolf

Memtest for testing your RAM, prime95 to check for CPU stability.

What problems are you having?

Like Supergrover said, what are your symptons, i once had a problem i originally suspected was the CPU or RAM (can't remember which since this is a vague story) and it turned out to be the south bridge of the motherboard isntead

UBCD has pretty well everything you'd ever need all on one easy-to-use bootable CD........

Ultimate Boot CD - Download the UBCD

The beauty of using this is that you're bypassing your OS completely and thus taking any possible driver/conflicts out of the picture.

The disk SSwilson offered is great but I personally prefer Hirens Boot CD although its a little harder to get.

Hiren's BootCD 9.8 - www.hiren.info
