OCZ RAM needing RMA?

Hey Toms Hardware, I need a little help.

My Specs are -

Intel Q6600 2.4GHz
Asus P5K Premium WiFi/AP
OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Gold Edition 4GB (2x2GB)
ATI Radeon HD4870

I have been getting BSODs whilst playing Modern Warfare 2, so I tested my RAM as I thought it could be the cause.

From using Memtest86 it would restart my PC with both sticks in my PC, one stick would pass every time in every slot, and the other stick would pass maybe once then get errors the second time or just error the first time. I am running the sticks at 2.10V just as manufacturer says, also I am running to standard timings.

I will test using Memtest86+ soon as I managed to get it to burn.

I was wondering if I would need to RMA my RAM as it is causing the BSODs when the second stick is under load and runs into the bad sector of the stick?

Any other information needed can be given.
