Current passing through a wire generates a magnetic field, and magnetic fields can disturb/flip bits on ram modules. There’s a fan header on my motherboard that is situated right next to my ram. I’m noticing that if I plug in about > .05 amps worth of current into that header, hcimemtest will throw errors in the first 25%. When I have < .05 amps, I can run hcimemtest to 1000%.
Is it possible that too much current near my ram can generate a magnetic field strong enough to disturb it during memtest?
