Recently I bought components for a PC build, with all going well for the initial few days. However, I started to get BSODs related to "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT","PFN_LIST_CORRUPT" and a host of other memory related reasons. Initially I assumed it was an OS issue and reinstalled Windows 7 64-bit, yet the errors persisted after a few days.
TW3X4G1333C9A - 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair DDR3 XMS3 Classic, PC3-10666 (1333), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, 1.50V
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T at 3.2Ghz
Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 AMD 870 AM3
Upon running Memtests on the RAM in slots #1 and #3 on the motherboard (for dual channel) there were a large number of fails detected. Yet when testing them individually in slot #1 both passed, such led me to believe there was an issue with slot #3 on the board. So I then tried the ram in configuration of slots #2 and #4 (again to facilitate dual channel), to be greeted by BSODs the next day. A Memtest in this configuration gave errors too.
At present I've reverted the sticks back to the initial #1 #3 slot arrangement, and have left Memtest running for 5 passes now with zero errors reported.
As such, I'm extremely confused as what component is to blame with regards to the BSODs and intermittent (such confuses me the most, how it seems to fail inconsistently) memtest fails. My initial gut feeling is that it is the RAM, though I thought enquiring further with people who are in the know would be wise before going down the route of returning/replacement.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
