I've had games crashing on me in the middle of playing since I built my new rig about two weeks ago.

Im currently running Memtest and its 16 minutes into its first pass and has already discovered 36 errors but im not sure what they mean or if im going to have to sink even more money into this expensive PC that I just built.

All I know is how to put PC's together so any recommendations or suggestions are very welcome.

Something is not right.

Remove all RAM sticks.
Install 1, in Slot 1.
Run memtest again
Repeat for all other slots
Repeat for all other sticks, one at a time.

See where the fault lies.
Thank you, i'll try it out and follow up with results

So I ran my first stick for 1 pass through all 4 slots and got no errors.
Second stick is showing 167 errors within the first 3 minutes on my first slot.
I'm no genius, but I think it's safe to assume that my second stick of RAM is the issue, haha
