Any of you guys Memtest86 savvy out there?

Looking at some results on a build im currently doing which i suspect may have faulty ram, hopefully results will shed some light on this situation. Ok, so i'll start with a list of tests and the error values and other things which may be important.

Ran all tests, a good many times over a period of several hours straight, not single tests just the mix of all tests it does as default.

Test 0: 0 errors
Test 1: 1 errors
Test 2: 0 errors
Test 3: 5 errors
Test 4: 33 errors
Test 5: 9 errors
Test 6: 806 errors (yes, eight hundred and six)
Test 7: 1338 errors (Correct, thats one thousand three hundred and thirty eight)
Test 8: 34 errors
Test 9: 11 errors
Test 10: 0 errors.

Total Errors: 2237

Error confidence value: 131

Max contiguous errors: 1

Lowest error address: 321.2mb

Highest error address: 16824.7mb

Now the ram im testing is corsair vengeance 16gb in 2x8gb sticks (i know it should be in quad channel, 4 sticks. These are just a temp measure). They are mounted on an asus rampage 4 extreme MB with a core i7 4930k attached. The tests have ran for 8 hours now.

I was wondering if someone could shed any lights on these results? I have read that test 7 can be somewhat discounted in terms of the kind of testing it does? :/ 

Let me know guys! Oh, and thank you! :)

Have you manually set the timings and voltage?

As yet Hardline no i have not. I have the bios set to xmp mode, and set the ram to its stock 1866. But thats about it. I will say that this ram was in another pc before it was put into this one, would that effect it at all? Or would it just be like fresh ram? The timings are on the ram, right? I'm not planning to overclock it.

the timings I would get from the product page. looks like your memory is bad . I would re run the test after manually configuring the min timings and voltage. just to be sure

It's what i suspected, although i will set the timings and run another few passes to be sure. Its still under warranty so it should be good for rma. Thanks for the reply Hardline, much appreciated.
