I have run memtest on them overnight (8 hours) with no errors reported,
so I don't think that is the reason.

     "What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have 
      faith, but has no deeds? Can such faith save him?
      Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and
      daily food.   If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish
      you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing
      about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same
      way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by
      actions, is dead."          James 2:14-17
