Memory is bad...

well i ran memtest 86 for about 9 hours and turns out i have bad ram,

although i did overclock it to get it at 1600 mhz bloke should know about this, i guess my next test is to put it back to normal and re test, if it is bad this could explain all the issues i have been having

With your machine and cost of it, you should let a professional look at it to repair if needed and set to default clocking.

i set the speeds back to default and there still errors coming back so i think the ram may be defected from the beginning

that may explain my problems i was posting about in the gaming section of these forums,

Very well could be. See if the ram could be RMAed. Show them the screenshot if you have to.

You are fortunate that your memory problem can be fixed with a stick of ram...mine would take brain surgery, and that wouldn't guarantee a solution.

No, that's probably fine but to be sure you can check the motherboard manual. It tells you which slots to install to in most cases, such as your 3 sticks.
