Well, here it is:

CPU 1 4 northbridge TSC 89cfb4725b17
Northbridge Chipkill ECC error
Chipkill ECC syndrome = 7014
bit32 = err cpu0
bit45 = uncorrected ecc error
bit57 = processor context corrupt
bit61 = error uncorrected
bus error 'local node origin, request didn't time out
generic read mem transaction
memory access, level generic'
STATUS b60a200170080813 MCGSTATUS 4
This is not a software problem!

Is this some sort of mem error?
