ESX Host Health Status Memory Warning

I have a VI3 test lab set up with two identical Dell 2650 servers (4GB ram, Emulex HBAs, CX200 FC SAN).  One displays a health status memory warning which apparently prevents the host being placed in a DRS/HA cluster.  I cannot locate any memory related error in the logs.  I have exchanged DIMMS between the two servers with no change.  Please see attached VC pic
Does anyone have a clue what might be causing this?

Check the voltage on the +5v rail.

RAM is powered by +5v.
If that voltage is out of range it could trigger the health status warning.
If the voltage is just a little out of range the RAM may still be working normally and so there will be no RAM errors recorded in logs.

running standalone diagnostics seems to have cleared this warning...

Hopefully it was a one time false positive then.
If it reoccurs I would inspect PSU and motherboard for bad capacitors and signs of anything overheating.
