Memtest86 - www.memtest86.com

Memtest86 is a good memory diagnostic program. It doesn't run from within Windows; it starts up from a bootable CD or floppy disk so that it can test the memory more thoroughly.

For those few motherboards that MBM does not support/work with:

SpeedFan does much the same thing. It allows the user to set fan speeds, and will also monitor S.M.A.R.T. capable HDD's
