I can't solve this RAM issue

Hello everyone!

So this is my RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3 1600MHz KVR16N11/4

Now my computer is brand new, everything is new in it (I submitted my entire configuration on my profile).

I am running Windows 8, and I am constantly getting BSODs, with different errors. Most of the time, I get "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT". But I also got "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I got some other messages, but I can't remember them. But I looked after these errors, and found that they all could be connected to the memory (RAM).

So I have UBCD on one of my USB drives, and I ran "Memtest86". I got this

So 13341 error pretty brutal.. Also Windows's diag

When this happened, I was running Windows 7. After all, I installed 8.

Now I'm still getting "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" error, daily (Not on boot, I'm using the PC, and suddenly bang, BSOD)

So I'm desperate, I ran "Memtest86" again, but left it overnight. I got ZERO errors....
Also ran Windows's diag tool again, finished w/o any errors.

What shall I do? Maybe it's not a hardware problem, it's just some driver problem?

Please, help, I am out of ideas..

Thanks in advance!!
(update-oh and sorry for my bad English)

    Are you running more than one DIMM? It seems likely that one or more may be failing (15% pass?!) Try removing them one at a time and see if the problem persists. Also try running the DIMMs at 1300MHz.

    Yeah 15% pass, I thought if it found 13K errors, than it's failing for sure..
    Okay, I could remove one of the two DIMMs (Stupid me forgot to mention its 2x4GB), and try that way..
    But how is that possible: I ran a test, found 13K errors. After a week, I ran the same test again on the same RAM, but now left it overnight - zero errors...

    The only problem is: How shall I remove the DIMM properly? I mean I can remove one of them, but I can't remove the other one, because the CPU fan is blocking my way - I have to remove the fan to get to the DIMM?
    But I'll just take a picture to make it clean: here

    Hmm, try just the one removed first and if you still get errors then you can try removing the CPU fan maybe?

    Okay, I'll try, and post an answer to inform you on results :D
  5. This happened:

    I removed the RAM from the first slot, tried computer with only one DIMM, in 3rd slot. I got a BSOD connected to RAM issues everytime. So I removed the DIMM in there (I think that must be faulty), and replaced the (I think) good one again. So booted again. No I have absolutely no problems since, no BSODs, and system seems stabile.
    Thanks for your help, I think the other DIMM is bad/malfunctioning. If I get a RAM problem with this, I'll post, but I think this one is OK. I'll just get a new DIMM - warranty. Thanks again.
