    had a run of 4 bad ami 256 meg chips in a row and wondering if my
    quality control is too stringent'...every ram chip passes memtest or
    it is sent the 4th today and ssure enough fails test 6
    howver on testing with tufftest pro it psses all tests for hours on
    what gives??

    perhaps it is your board that is faulty, not the chips.

    The motherboard you are testing them in doesnt like them.

    Probably a motherboard or software incompatibility with that particular

    my supplier sent an apacer chip over and a fourth ami chip
    apacer passess the memtest routine fine as do 99% of other ram chips
    that come through......the 4th ami chip failed the same as the other 3
    so the motherboard is ok IMHO
    the ami ram chip passess the test in tufftest pro as well as docmem
    and windows memory diagnostic [linux off the ultimate boot cd]

    so again what is it with memtest is it too stringent??

    Nope, the others are not stringent enough.

    The motherboard doesnt like the ami dimms.

    It points to an incompatibility with that particular RAM/motherboard
    combination and memtest is the only one that is picking it up with a
    particular routine.

    Try another motherboard and run memtest it again to confirm it would be my
