You have to frame the idea yourself.

Now follow the "Part 3: If You Have Errors:" of How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+

Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:

testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:

testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

I'm in the midst of testing the RAM. It might take a few days as i have 4 sticks of 4GB. Will report my findings once the tests are done!

I have 4 sticks of RAM of 2GB each and 4 RAM slots.

RAM 1
RAM 2
RAM 3
RAM 4

Slot A
Slot B
Slot C
Slot D

I've ran Memtest for more than 7 passes for each of the following combinations:

RAM 1 and 2 in Slots A and C
RAM 1 and 2 in Slots B and D
RAM 3 and 4 in Slots A and C

The weird thing is i have no errors for any of the combinations thus far.

4x4 means a lot of combinations

I think one RAM only one by one in all DIMMs one by one should be a nice check. It will straightly identify the failing one.

I have tested the RAM quite extensively and i have not had any errors. The only time i had errors was when i used them 4x4GB (all 4 sticks together).

Does this point to some motherboard fault? Because i am currently using 2x4GB and it's been stable for days.
