Tested one of the four sticks of RAM today, ran for approx 8 hours and a big screen of red errors when I arrived home from work, tried the same stick in a different slot and got errors again, tested a different stick in one of the slots that gave me errors with the previous stick and no errors (not a long test this time but still).

Not sure why I didn't get errors last time I ran memtest86, possibly I was testing them altogether?

The other thing that worries me is that this is very new RAM, bought to try replace old ram that gave me errors in memtest86, surely the odds of me getting new faulty ram to replace old faulty ram is very slim? and if so could it be my MB or something else in my PC breaking the RAM.

I suspect you just have a bad stick. It sounds like this is just a coincidence, although if the new RAM you get starts erroring too, we can start wondering if something is damaging the RAM.
