I'm happy to see you've got it narrowed down enough.

Or this:
"A hardware component in your system is failing.
[insert specific bit if MCE is certain enough about what part]
If you can, try to narrow it down by placing it in another mainboard
(assuming you have one available), or run [memcheck, another tool].
Then contact the hardware vendor(s) in question, if uncertain, try
your CPU vendor first."
