Issues with crashing/BSOD and memory.

I've only had this computer for 3 weeks, but I have had a handful of BSODs. I ran a memtest on an XMP profile I had loaded, which yielded 700+ errors before I ended the test and switched to the default profile. I'm running memtest86 right now (I'll update in the morning with the results) and so far, with one pass, I've gotten 14 errors.

Could this be the cause of my issues? I'm considering RMAing the RAM regardless, but it would be nice to know what you guys think. I'll post a memdump and the info of my most recent BSOD in the morning.

(Mods: Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.)

memtest error means bad stick or bad setting.......

If u sure the setting was correct then the RAM is bad one try claim the warranty.

ps: i think it's better to return it...........

Update: Old RAM RMA'd. 8 passes later on some older RAM and no errors. Immediately switched back to the new stuff, and errors immediately. Ordered new RAM while waiting to return the old stuff and it went 8 passes without any issues.
