    Good morning, just checked on the memtest it was on its 5 pass and had found something in the region of 13000 errors.

    Next step? switch Ram into diferent slots and redo the test?

    The next step is to test each stick in the (used) slots, but 1 stick can't be in a slot while 1 stick is tested.

    For example with sticks called stick A and stick B and slots called slot 1 and slot 2
    Stick A goes in slot 1, stick B is not in any slot.
    Stick A goes in slot 2, stick B is not in any slot.
    Stick B goes in slot 1, stick A is not in any slot.
    Stick B goes in slot 2, stick A is not in any slot.

    You note for each time if the memory test is giving errors, for example:
    If the output is like this then you have bad RAM so the stick(s) need replacing. The first stick of RAM fails in both DIMM slots but the second stick of RAM passes in both DIMM slots.
    TEST SLOT 1 SLOT 2
    STICK A ERROR ERROR
    STICK B GOOD GOOD
    If the output is like this then you should replace the motherboard. Both sticks of RAM fail in the first DIMM slot but both sticks pass in the second DIMM slot.
    TEST SLOT 1 SLOT 2
    STICK A ERROR GOOD
    STICK B ERROR GOOD

    Just started the memtest on stick 1 but before I managed to get into my bios, a screen came up that said over clocking has failed please press f2 to Fix in setup-ish. I never purposely setup overclocking on this rig, is it possible this is causing an issue?

    OC'ing could cause problems yes, it is however possible that some components came shipped overclocked

    ughh that's irritating. well I suppose stopping that can come after working out what's causing the issue.
    Will get back to you with the memtest results.

    Just a quick question, on memtest I have been changing the configuration to test all memory. Is it necessary?

    It shouldn't be necessary to change anything in the test, changed settings could change the output of the test.
