FWIW I recently added a couple of DIMMs to my own (pre-UEFI) system and 
decided to run memtest before declaring victory.

memtest86 hung just a little way into the test. No problems reported, 
just froze.

memtest86+ ran to the end (and found no problems.) So that's the one I 
kept. And system has been behaving fine.

I didn't think to run either one before the upgrade...
