Maybe this provides some information:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECC_memory#Problem_background

"Work published between 2007 and 2009 showed widely varying error rates 
with over 7 orders of magnitude difference, ranging from 10−10−10−17 
error/bit·h, roughly one bit error, per hour, per gigabyte of memory to 
one bit error, per century, per gigabyte of memory.[2][4][5] A very 
large-scale study based on Google's very large number of servers was 
presented at the SIGMETRICS/Performance’09 conference.[4] The actual 
error rate found was several orders of magnitude higher than previous 
small-scale or laboratory studies, with 25,000 to 70,000 errors per 
billion device hours per megabit (about 3–10×10−9 error/bit·h), and more 
than 8% of DIMM memory modules affected by errors per year."
