Anyone knows how one would go about doing this for a d0 920? i got a mce with 0x9c ( 0x0, 0xfffff8800311dc70,0x0,0x0) and google has so far turned up nothing, and I know there is some sort of pdf out there detailing the intel AMD64 implementation that says that the heck this mce means but just can't find it.

Try parcemce under Linux and see what it will say. But it's bank 0, address of MCA_EXCEPTION structure, hi, lo 32 bits of P5_MC_ADDR MSR

You must have an more detailed error log.

also :

In Windows Vista and later operating systems, this bug check occurs only in the following circumstances.

  • WHEA is not fully initialized.
  • All processors that rendezvous have no errors in their registers.

This is what you want as pdf i guess : http://download.intel.com/design/processor/manuals/253668.pdf http://download.intel.com/design/processor/manuals/253668.pdf part 15 - 15.9

I wish you good luck with the task as decoding mce errors is a quite nasty task
