The other cause of such errrors are hardware problems, which seems to
be quite probable in your case given the presence of "machine checks".

I think the DCPERR registers equal to 6 means there was a parity error
in the data cache. That could explains the internal errors, did you
try any overcloking? If not you may try either to underclock a bit, or
maybe switch to SRM which could have different hardware settings.
