I don't trust memtest86 for 64-bit mode kernels... I've seen examples of 
it running just fine for days, when the kernel barfs after an hours 
usage. It is just 2 machines, so not a large sample from my side.

Clocking down the memory helped in one case.

The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
