Have you tried memtestplus? (I'm grasping at straws...) It's not a
generic problem with dual-core amd64; I do builds on my Thinkpad T61
But yes, my first instinct is to guess temperature, too. I wonder if
there are other temperature sensors you're not seeing. Here's what
envstat says on my machine:
temperature: 44.000 degC
temperature: 42.000 degC
cpu0 temperature: 42.000 degC
cpu1 temperature: 42.000 degC
TMP0: 44.000 degC
TMP1: 39.000 degC
TMP2: 33.000 degC
TMP4: 33.000 degC
TMP5: 31.000 degC
TMP6: 31.000 degC
TMP7: 31.000 degC
I didn't see the 8 Thinkpad sensors until Jared (I believe) wrote a
special Thinkpad driver.
Hmm -- try booting with 'no acpi' and see what happens. Of course, I
think that will take away your ability to monitor temperature.

Can you ssh in remotely and look at log data there in real-time? The
ssh windows won't go away for several minutes at least after the crash,
until the kernel is back up and sending RSTs.
