In my case, I was getting error message in /var/log/messages which
indicated I was getting some data corruption.

On most modern motherboards, there is a BIOS setting which allows you
to adjust how much voltage is going to your RAM.  Depending on the
type of RAM you have, the necessary voltage could vary anywhere from
1.8V to 3V.

Older motherboards have a jumper physically on the motherboard, for
adjusting such things.
