@DmitryGrigoryev: memtest86+ tests L1, L2 and L3 caches of a CPU, which is the data cache, right?

memtest86+ definitely tests the CPUs data cache, but that doesn't matter for this question. Thank you again for your answer.

Thank you for your answer. memtest is testing the CPU cache as well. So if memtest would be loaded into this cache, then it this part of the cache couldn't be tested, which is more problematic, because it's much smaller than the memory?
