My System Specs


Instead of opening another thread, I thought I could ask my next question here. I previously had two sticks of G. Skill Ripjaws ram that were faulty, but instead of being completely useless, they decided to simply crash my system from time to time, and more importantly, corrupt files that were being written to my hdd. I had a plethora of video files, pictures, and zip files that were corrupted, and the video files were the worst because they were still watchable but with occasional artifacts in the pictures. It took me the longest time to narrow the problem down to the ram and to change them out, and by then almost half of my video library had these picture corruptions.

How do I make sure I catch this in time on my new rig aside from running MemTest86+?
