I'm currently in the middle of the memtest. It's been going for about 14 hours and has done 4.5 passes. I've got 2x4GB sticks. Is that normal?

I'm also running the OS on an SSD, but I was experiencing the same issues on my HDD. Once the memtest is complete I'll run the stress test but it looks like I can't do the first one you listed.

8GB should take around 8-10h, but sometimes it takes longer. Not sure why, but it happens.

So I was a little off on my estimation, 4 passes took 17.5 hours. I needed my computer today so I stopped after the 4th pass. I'll be out of the house later this week, so I'll have time to run it for about ~40 hours. Hopefully that'll get the 8 passes done.

Here's the other info you requested:
12V: 12.144
5V: 5.088
3.3V 3.296

Are the hardware drivers all up to date?
CPU, network, peripherals, others?
Definitely for the CPU and network, check the company for driver updates.
Also check your motherboard manufacturer for driver updates.

As far as I know, everything is up to date. I used the windows driver utility and manually updated all the drivers. I'm currently running the stress test now.

Are my specs complete enough?

I've gone to ASRock and Gigabyte and downloaded all the drivers there.
