I am having an issue that I fixed on another server by testing each stick of memory with memtest86 and removing the one bade module.

I have another server doing same thing.
So I am starting same process, but wondering what your process is. I am trying to find the bad module(s) as fast as possible and then running all "good" modules through the ringer. I am using the hammer test to go fast on a single module at a time, but wondering if a different test can find the usual errors faster to try and get to a full test with all memory faster?

I used prime95 , custom setting to use all memory.

I believed even ram stick failed Memtest86 test13 hammer test, it is not necessary a real problem.
The ram chip may be still be good.
You may want to read up on failing test13 hammer test implication.
