Memtest86 Errors

I did a 5-hour run of Memtest86 and found 6 errors. My RAM is a Vengeance 8GB set (2 x 4GB) bought on December 7, 2011. Here is a screenshot of the results.

Does this mean there's something wrong with my RAM? How do I fix it?

 

Thank you.

Not necessarily. Try backing down the frequency to 1333mhz and retest. your errors could be caused by an unstable overclock.

 

You are right. My overclock was not stable.

 

I loaded Optimal Defaults in BIOS, which sets RAM speed back to 1333, and ran Memtest86 for another 5 hours. There were no errors this time.

 

Thank you for your help.
