You can't trust this 100%. We had a problem with a SuperMicro board; database
kept getting scrambled occaisionally. Ran memtest86 on burn-in mode for 24
hours -- never found a problem -- boot back into the OS and bam, scrambled data
again. When we replaced one of the memory sticks as a last ditch effort, it
fixed the problem.
