I stream on twitch and recently I started getting BSoD. I thought I had virus or something so I reinstalled windows. That didnt work... Next I opened my task bar and checked for any high usage programs, the only programs I had opened were google with 6 tabs opened on it. I saw that sometimes my google chrome would use between 75 and 85% of my CPU. After that I started to look for answers and somehow I landed on memtests86... So I was like ok why not im going to test every component in my pc starting from ram. I have 2×8gb ram and I take one of them out and I boot the program. What I saw that I had more than 8000 errors in the first 2 passes all of them starting from test 3 going up to test 9. I dont know anymore and pls help me understand which component I should change, I guess its ram but just to be 110% sure I want to hear it from someone that has more experience with those things.

Sorry for the long message :(

And thank you for your help:)
 
Hey there,

What are your PC specs. Please list them.

Yes, you are correct. Normally errors like that in memtest, indicate problematic DIMMS. Have you recently purchased the ram? It's possible they are covered under warranty, so you may be able to RMA them.
