Okay so my pc has been crashing big games such as Apex and COD MW. I've been doing a lot of research and tested my gpu, cpu, and ram. I used memtest86 and I got 2 errors on Test 6: CPU 8. Anyone know what this means ? Im hoping it's the ram that is bad and not my cpu. If anyone knows how to help I'd really appreciate it.
Specs:
Asus Z390-a prime
RTX 3070 XC3
I9-9900k
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16

I recommend to decrease DRAM voltage and speed (set lower JEDEC/XMP settings) and test it again with bootable memory testing tools. If you're using the tools in Windows - they can't access all address space. In addition I recommend to make a live usb to test your RAM with it. If there are actual physical RAM errors - the system should drop access violation errors, bluescreen or simply stuck on running most applications. If it was the problem in the CPU - the mobo will not boot at all.

If memtest shows any errors that's bad.

Do you have the proper bios?
Is the ram in the a2+b2 slots?
Is this ram a kit of 2 or 2 sticks bought separate?
Ill check for an update on bios rn, the ram is in a2+b2 slot and yes the ram came in a kit.
