Can you limit the amount of ram being used by OS X (High Sierra?

I am looking at a Macbook Pro Retina Early 2014 for someone.

Unfortunately some of the RAM is bad. Out of the available 16gb. From about 13.5 to 16gb is bad. Sadly all the RAM is soldered on to the mainboard so I can't just fish out the bad stick and replace it.

Does anyone know of a way of limiting the RAM that is being addressable by the system. IE. 12gb to 16gb is off limits. No using any RAM above say x00360000000 (errors are occurring from x0036dd1929c) is there a a way to disable access to certain banks?

Or are we really looking at new board / machine time?

Any input is most welcome, as far as software to do this goes the closest I haven probably seen is BadRam which is only available on Linux as far as I know.
