I just recently got a couple Poweredge T140 servers in for a couple clients. One has an i3 8100, the other has a Intel Xeon E-2136. The Xeon one fails every memory test I throw at it with Memtest86 8.2. I've replaced the RAM with known good RAM - including the RAM from the other T140 and it fails in every slot. That said, I get zero in the way of operating problems. Since this server's getting shipped out of state, I'm a bit leery here though. Anyone know of a compatibility issue with memtest86 8.2 and the Xeon E-2136 series of CPUs? Think I've got a bad board?

Doubt the board has a problem, just probably BIOS incompatibilities with Memtest86. Have you tried Memtest86+ instead?
