    I read that 86 is the newer version (still receives updates) but wasn't sure if it is suitable for the BIOS. I watched a video and it seems it is fine to test both sticks at the same time and to test individually if it errors to determine stick or port. Half hour for 3 passes? So I guess about 2 hours for 6 passes on both sticks? I will run it when I go to bed tonight.

    To be fair my Hirens disc is an old version so go with the latest if you can, however it ran ok on a H370M with an i3-8100 so you should be fine. I'm old school and just stick with 1 module at a time, to be fair most of the time a bad module will error within the first minute :)

    I'm sure it would work fine for me, but you might want something newer for testing DDR4.

    @Pookie I didn't have time to run it longer. Next time I'm going to be away for the day I will try to run it from the night before until I get back. Sme suggest running up to 7 passes which would take 19 hours. I computer rarely sits unused for more than 7 hours as I work from home. Still, the memory doesn't seem to have any major problems.

    Based on that you can say the ram is fine.
