To run a proper memtest you want to run it for 6-8 hours minimum, this will
give your PC a good work over at the same time.

My niece had a similar issue as you with CPU overheating on her laptop, I
could run live cds and leave it in the bios for ages but running Windows
after about 10 minutes it would shut down so doing something
fairly strenuous would be a good test.
