Hi f-ingComputer :)

You can test your RAM sticks using Memtest86+. I suggest you to run a test on each stick individually, this way if one is bad, you'll be able to identify it right away and not have to repeat the process on each of them. Be sure to test all your RAM sticks.

Follow the instructions in the thread below. They are pretty straightforward and easy to follow.

Hello

 

I'm using 2x 8GB

So I should test 1x8GB at one time?

You should test one 8GB RAM stick at the time, yes.

Will post back, thanks for the quick response
