Did you find errors when running MemTest?
If so, then use it when swapping the sticks around.

 

If you didn't find errors when running MemTest, then you'll have to use Prime95 to spot errors.

 

I'm uncertain of the significance of it freezing with only one stick while playing games.
It could be that slot 1 is bad - but that remains to be seen after the testing is completed.

Just boot into Windows with the one stick and run it from there.
