  1. I heard there're these memory test stations you can use to test RAM sticks and that would isolate the RAM against a the possibility of a bad motherboard producing the memory errors.
    Something like this?:

    yes, this station tests RAM sticks, in a production line that is building boards w/ram.

    never. there's so much misunderstanding in this statement it's hard to begin.

    Motherboards do not create memory errors. the other components use DMA to read/write data in ram, but that's at the control of some firmware or software.

    "Errors" come from mismanagement of the specs (temp, voltage, humidity), bad firmware or mismanagement of memory access protocols.

    If it were possible to
    we would never have known the term.
