Prime95 tests 3 things: RAM, CPU cache, and the memory controller (either on the CPU or on the motherboard - it depends on your CPU model)
The Blend test is mostly used to test RAM. The other tests are less specific, but failures in either tend to make me suspect the 3 items listed above.
If you're still getting errors in MemTest, the first thing to do is to test (with MemTest) each stick individually in the first slot (if you still have the old RAM - test both the old and the new)
If all fail, then try each in the 2nd slot, etc Make sure that you use good anti-static precautions.
Once you find a stick that passes (at least 3 passes are required), then test that stick in each of the slots.
This will tell you which slots are bad and which aren't.
If all the slots fail all the sticks, then you likely have a problem with the motherboard.
While a CPU problem is possible - it's less likely than a problem with the motherboard.
