I've had a few issues with this build, but this is now the most annoying. It's fine for the most part, I've been playing GTA V without issues for a week etc for context.
Today however, I've had 4 crashes due to DRAM (light on motherboard), no at boot up but between 15mins to a hour+ of use.

I have moved the sticks to the other 2 slots, currently I am using one stick to test if it's an issue. I'm a little lost as to what to do in all honesty besides checking sticks in each slot.

I'm getting faults (after hours or 20 minutes, with every Stick in every ram slot. I've noticed now that my PSU 5v rail is very low (it's currently at 4.1) so I will have to return this, could this be related?

If you have another system you can test the memory in, that would be ideal. Otherwise, you could swap the power supply and try again.
It was solely the PSU, bought another one and all is fine. Sending the other back for a refund. Thanks.
