help memtest86 errors

So i need some help. Below is my pc spec:

System:
i7 4930K
16 GB Corsair Dominator
750GB Samsung Evo SSD
780 Ti Video Card
Asus Rampage Black x79 Mobo
NZXT Kraken 280mm All-In-One Liquid Cooling Solution
Windows 8 Pro

now i just reformatted my pc but i am still getting some errors so i think i have some bad memory but I am hoping someone can help me.

Here is the memory i have
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233339
CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M4B2133C9

now i have set up the timings and volts to make sure they are right with the memory but since then i have received memory_management and bad_pool_header blue screens. I ran memtest86 on it and here is the results.

I guess i see a lot of errors.. do i need to just do one stick at a time? Also the errors i mentioned above do you think both are due to bad memory?

    Most likely bad ram, do a RMA on it.
  2. hi Corvarea,

    i have the same probleme with my ASUS x75v. when i try to install a windows on it, the installation stops just after i select the partition where i want to install the operating system.

    i tryed to install all the operating systems i have (from windows xp 32 bit & 64 bit to win 8.1 32 bit and 64 bit).

    then i removed the hard disk and plug it in another loptop (a core 2 duo acer) and tryed to install all the windows i mentioned before. the only windows that worked was windows 8 32 bit. i puted back the HD back on the ASUS, install all the drives and it's working fine now.

    i performed a test with Memtest86, and the result is the same result you got, thousand and thousands of errors. and that's my test result:

    this one was taken in the very beginning of the test:



    and this one is the final result:



    i hope you try to do the same thing i did at least to make the laptop running. and that we can be in touch because this probleme seems to be inexistant in the net. and if maybe you solved the problem, tell me how you did it because i have a powerfull laptop with 8 gb of ram, that i can't use all of it.
