if at all possible, you should run memtest86 (or similar) for a few

the poor man's test would be to stress the hell outta your box with lots
of heavy lifting - perhaps recompiling the kernel over, and over, and
over again to see if strange gcc errors occur. such strange errors are
usually an indication of an unhappy cpu or memory.

you'd probably want to shell script the repetition and go out for a few
hours:)

good luck
