Memory error - Mainboard defective? (Proliant ML130 G3)

A few weeks ago our server started to become unresponsive (hang) once a day at irregular intervals. During a hang the server won't respond to the keyboard/mouse and the monitor is black. Windows 2003 SBS logging shows, after a reboot, an entry stating the previous shutdown was unexpected and there are no other entries in the log.

I suspected the memory to be defective and running several tests with Memtest86+ returned an error with the memory.
The problem is; no matter how I swap the memory modules around in the slots, the error is every time on the same memory address: 000000004f8.

Now I'm suspecting the mainbord to be defective but I'm wondering if I can do anymore tests to be certain the mainboard is defective?

ml130 G3?

which is the exact model? since there is Smartstart CD for 300 - 500 Series and insight diagnostics for some 100 Series servers so knowing that I can tell you which tool to test

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
