heat cycle.  Sometimes it just take a few hours and a module will start
failing. 
Down the lines of Mike's comments you might consider trying out
Microsoft's memory diagnostic (yes it is free and you don't need to have
a validated copy of windows).  It might use a different set of patterns
for testing that match up better with Windows.

I did the windiag and it ran for 1.5-2 hours, with the "advanced tests" or
whatever it's called when you hit 'T', and no errors were found.

I'll run memtest86+ overnight tonight. If no errors are found then I'll leave
windiag running tomorrow morning when I'm gone to class.


Thanks,
Kris
