Machine was behaving dodgy, ran a memory test, here's the result:

I am unable to interpret what's on screen. Any ideas what's going on?

I tried this on a spare module I had and this one seems corrupt as well :(

Instead of the ram itself being bad you may have a bad slot on the mobo

Try taking out all but one stick, put it in the first slot, and test. Remove adn replace with 2nd stick, test. Rinse and repeat. If they all come back good, then I'd lean towards a bad slot...

Is there a quicker way to do it, memtest takes forever. Even after leaving it doesn't finish its business.

Tried the elimination test, tried testing each module individually, all but one came out clean. Rekon that one stick's dodgy then.
