    Hey guys

    So I ran memtest for a bit today and an error occurred, sadly I have no idea where the problem is coming from, perhaps memory timings or something like that?
    If anybody knows any solutions for this please reply

    I wouldn't test in windows. Load memtest on a flash drive or bootable CD and run it on boot to test.

    +1 the windows test is unreliable at best. Running it from boot is the only way to see for sure.

    Yup, create a boot CD with Memtest86+ : http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

    Then be sure correct speed and latency is set and check each stick individually to find the bad stick.

    well thanks for the advice to all of you,
    I ran the memtest from boot, ran it for over 3 hours and found no errors

    so I'm guessing the ram is healthy?
