I have some OCZ DDR2 667 2Gb Kit that I just purchased yesterday. I ran memtest for 9 hours and it had 10 errors over that 9 hrs. Only one test had 6 errors all the other 4 errors happened in their own test. Should I have no errors ever our is it ok to have a couple of errors over such a long run of memtest.

Thanks for the replys. I'm going to spend some more time testing with voltages, and 1 stick or 2.

I upped the voltage from 1.8 to 1.9 and manually set the timmings and speeds. Then ran memtest for 3 cycles and no errors.

Is 3 cycles enough our should I run it longer

I'm pretty sure the common-sense voltage limit for DDR2 is 2.1V, so you're still in the safe zone.

I'm not worried about the voltage, this is OCZ gamer memory, and they cover the warranty up to 2.2V and I know 1.9V is nothing for DDR2.

I will run memtest overnight to night and give it another 9hrs or so.
