This smells very much like a hardware problem - buildworld and buildkernel
have proven to be excellent system stress tests over time.

Make sure the CPU & system cooling and power supply is up to scratch -
it's not clear how much of your system is new but your old PSU might
be a bit stressed running your new XP.

(I presume this is Memtest86 from  Whilst in-situ
memory tests will pick up a stuck bit or badly out-of-tolerance memory,
they are far less reliable at detecting marginal memory or pattern
sensitivities.  Can you exchange the DIMM or (temporarily) swap it with
a known good one?

Have you tried under-clocking your system or using less aggressive RAM
timings?  If that makes it stable, it's a fairly clear indication that
your system is marginal.
