comment How to access S.M.A.R.T. values when using RAID and Intel Matrix Storage?
@steve It did work on my system when I wrote that post. (I no longer use Intel Matrix RAID, so I can't test if it still does.) The "drive health" and "estimated life remaining" are for Intel SSDs only, yes. But if you click the "SMART Details" button for the individual disks (not the array), you get all the standard SMART attributes for any disk. (I had WD and Seagate HDDs.)

comment I have been told to accept one error with Memtest86+
He means valid as in "intermittent errors are real errors, not an artifact of Memtest". But that doesn't necessarily translate to faulty RAM. Intermittent RAM errors happen, that's why there is such a thing as error-correcting RAM. Google measured it on their servers: "an average DIMM experiences nearly 4000 correctable errors per year".

Agree with @Shinrai - if there weren't occasional intermittent glitches with normal RAM, there would be no market for error correcting RAM. Repeated errors at the same address is a different matter, that would indicate a faulty memory cell.
