Are you testing the DIMMS separately and in different RAM slots?

Nope. I'm doing exactly as the guide suggests. Now that errors have been found I'll test with different slots.

The test has been running for more than 15 hours.

Pass 8.
Errors 3096832.

Currently on test #8.

You should get new RAM module.
As it is showing errors, it will not perform well.

I thought as much, not good news!

So, if I buy new RAM is it likely to solve my BSOD issues and somewhat-slow PC performance?

If there is no other problems, it will solve the BSOD issues.

While buying, match the FSB of the other existing modules, it will not be any performance issue there

Brilliant. Thank you. I've solved the overheating problem and reinstalled Windows on solid state so I cannot think what else it can be apart from the motherboard or the RAM.

However, I am not too sure what you mean by FSB and of which modules? I notice that SIW shows the DDR2 as having "Wrong/Incomplete values reported by BIOS".

I've got two different models of Corsair, how do I know which to replace?

Remove the RAM you tested last night. Take it to the shop, and ask to give you a matching one. Then, put the new one in place of that one.

So all four sticks of RAM? As I tested it all at once last night.

In which case I'll probably buy it from Overclockers or some similar site.

Better you test them one by one, a single one at a time. All those modules may not be bad.
