10-15 passes should suffice for testing, + additional stress test in windows + benchmark batchrun = safe to say you reached stable operating speed

it would not be the first time that I receive errors after 30 passes!

you can say with 95% that memtest stable ( no or very few errors ) = stable in windows, if it's not stable in win, then your problem is not the mem!

I had sticks running stable in Memtest but would not pass 1x3DMark run in windows, CPU at default speed, VGA not OC'd, lowering OC by a few mhz made the system stable.

I stand corrected, as you see, not every sys is the same
