The error may come in the first minute, and it may come after a number of passes. It cannot be said with certainty, mate.

I ran the first stick of ram for 16 passes without error. Now running the second stick in the same slot, its at the 6th pass, no errors yet.

I have now tested both sticks. I have testes the first stick in its original slot (slot 2, or a2 as the mobo manufacturer calls it), the second stick in slot a2 and the second stick in its original position (4th slot, or b2). None gave any errors, all tests ran 11 passes..

There are 4 RAM slots ... have you tested all the sticks in all the slots individually?

I haven't, no... I kinda thought that if the first error showed up with ram inserted in a2 and b2, if it isnt the ram, the problem has to be with one of those 2 slots. My apologies.

Little update: just went ahead and toon a closer look at the ram i have installed. Turns out they weren't sold as a dual channel kit. Its two sticks with the same model number though, but i read somewhere that this could still produce problems. The ram is cruciale ballistix sport 4gb. Model nr BLS4G3D1609DS1S00. Is it possible that this could be the problem? (Still testing the ram in the other slots ATM.)

I think it is dual channel when applied in a dual channel slot, like 0 and 2, 1 and 3 in your case. Still I requested my guru essenbe to have a look at your question.

Your Motherboard manual will tell you which 2 slots the ram should be in. If you test each stick of ram in each slot, it will tell you whether the problem is the ram or the Dimm slots. A bad stick of ram will fail in every slot. A good stick of ram should pass in every slot. So, if you test 1 stick and it passes in all but 1 Dimm Slot, it should indicate to you that the Motherboard has a bad dimm slot.

Thanks everybody for their input. Little update:
I have now tested one stick in all slots - without errors.
I have tested the seconden stick in two out of fout slots (the slots i have tested werd the slots i was using when my PC crashed for the last time - no errors.
I am currently testing the third slot with the seconden stick - no errors as of pass 6.
The only time i got errors was when i had both sticks insirted in dual channel.

Are you running the sticks for 8 passes?
