After a kernel panic crash in the middle of the stable update of 2019-10-10, my system was rendered unusable and I needed to completely reinstall everything. While at it, I randomly ran a memtest scan and I was surprised to instantly get a ton of errors on all tests. The thing is, if my RAM is as damaged as it looks like, I am not experiencing a lot of symptoms... I think.
Here is a screenshot
I do get an occasional system crash, but mostly getting firefox tabs crash and rarely system freezes. Been running big games and heavy process with almost no problem! I'd expect to have a totally unusable computer with this kind of error reports wouldn't I? There are a lot of small bugs/irritating stuff on my system, but nothing major.
I know a healthy system should provide 0 errors. But with 1113856 in 3h09, I think there is a problem, but I'm not sure on how to proceed. I can try the RAM sticks one at a time and/or on different slots with no problem. But I want to hear from you first on what you think the gravity of the situation is.

Also, in BIOS, I enabled XMP profile 1 (enable or disable gave both instant errors in memtest).
What do you think should be my next step?
Thanks in advance,
