    FREE memory testing utility??
    Not including the one on the OS X cd. I've heard that one is notoriously unreliable.

    I'm having a bunch of programs unexpectedly crash on me and i'm trying to get to the bottom of it. Before i reload OS X i want to test the RAM. does anyone know of any utils for that??

    you could have 4gb's and it would still freeze/crash on you if the memory is corrupt. Capacity means nothing if the ram is defective
