As Jay noted in

   630 Processor Correctable correctable cache and TLB errors

For a while I got vector=0x670 machine checks, which are processor
uncorrectable cache and TLB errors. I found that in my case it was due to
overheating because the cpu fan and heat sink assembly had become full of
dust. After I blew out the parts with compressed air, I've not had the
problems since.
