    Is there are memtest program that can check over 2 Gb of single DIMM and over 4 Gb of total memory?
    Because i just have the old memtest86, which is limited to 4 Gb.

    it should if you go under advanced options. I used a version from like 4 years ago and iv tested over 8GB with it. If it really doesnt work for you the new version should it was updated lat year IIRC

    but i really think their is a test all option one of the F keys i believe.

    Does memory diag need to be run on default RAM SPD settings, or can i run this program in RAM OC mode? By OC i mean default safe OC, defined by manufacturer (CL 7 at 1.65V versus SPD settigns CL9 at 1.5V)

    you can use it at whatever speed you want. its not just used to see if a stick is bad alot of us use it to test ram stability when we OC.
