- Either your motherboard is stuffed
- or someone sold you dodgy RAM
- it might also be your RAM timings if you've played around with that.

Tip: Your error count in MemTest86+ should be zero once burnt in, and ideally no more than 1 error in 3 to 25 passes when burning in. More than 2 errors in 25 passes is a hardware defect (usually).
