Well I just finished running it for ~30hrs and it only detected 530 errors. I will leave it running again overnight to see if any show up this time.

It certainly seems to be improving

Has now been running for an hour without any errors! Should I leave it running for another 24hrs to make sure?

Yes, I think so (maybe not 24 hours, but at least 4-6). An hour isn't a good judge of memory stability in memtest.

Meh, left it running overnight and it detected thousands of errors. I'm confused!

If you had it running for an hour with no errors, it must be lack of airflow that is causing the errors after extended periods. Try putting a fan blowing directly onto the RAM or even a fan blowing across it.

I have limited knowledge of memory overclocking...but I have done it sucessfully with value vx. My theory is that some of the chips do not handle the voltage as well as others, and since there is no heatspreader to average the heat (without active cooling) these chips will cause the errors in memtest #5 (this test generates the most heat). Don't get me wrong, I agree with everyone else here, when you *are* using active cooling heatspreaders are probably a hindrance.
