Thanks. I cannot really (or easily) use this though, as the box is
collocated, and not next door. If it would be here, I would
long have tried replacing hardware parts to see what it is.

I am now running memtest from ports. This gives no errors so far. But
it seems only to test the unused RAM.

I would have expected that the functioning of cache and RAM should be
visible in some utility like systat.
