    Memtest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to have a balance between time (number of false negatives) and accuracy. So a minimum of 8 passes has been used. Sometimes it takes passes in the teens to find problems with memory. So the more passes the better. Most often people are not able to run the test for these long periods. We had one OP recently with 86 passes.

    You can turn off prime95 and run Memtest86+ for each RAM in one DIMM. Please make sure you choose only one DIMM.
    Run each RAM for at least 8 passes in the same DIMM.
    Make images and post into the thread.
    If the RAM fails then you have determined the faulty RAM.
    If both RAM pass then you will move the RAM to the next DIMM and retest.

    Did that and immediately seeing errors and lots of them. Any explanation why the RAM was supposedly fine when I ran my first test with both modules?

    What's even more weird is that I'm seeing only errors.

    No software test is 100%.

    The suggested tests are often reliable, but when the suspicious arises that the test could be not right this time it is best to physically test, like you did.

    Memtest86+ is reporting massive errors again (started at about 50% during first pass).

    Thanks so far, will report back once I get that RAM module replaced.

    Hello,

    RAM was indeed defective and was replaced for free by the retailer. So far, my system is stable and survived 48h of memtest86+ and 15h of Prime95. I'm considering this solved for now and I'm praying that it will stay this way.

    Thank you everyone.
