Default Re: PC gaming lockups and crashes

Ran memtest for 9 hours straight
Made 12 full passes, 0 errors

I'm leaning more and more towards a motherboard issue, possibly with the PCI Express connector, but I have no idea how to test for motherboard failures

Thanks for your help by the way, I appreciate it

It means you file a request with the company of the product to have the product replaced or repaired.

This requires sending the product to them and going to their website and filling out a RMA form/request.

RMA = Return Merchandise Authorization

Like Ste said. Contact the place you bought it for this authorization to return it for repair or replacement.

Try to see if you can deal directly with the manufacturer on this one. This time of the year is the worst time of year is the worst time to be processing any RMA as the whole computer industry shuts down for a week between Christmas and New Years.
