MC == Machine check exception.
The important part of a MC is the "status" code.
One can use the Intel doc "Architecture Software Developers Manual" to decode
this (4000 page .pdf).
Unsure but it looks like AMD does similar MC codes.
Luckily Linux does some heavy lifting and decodes to "cache hierarchy error L2
data eviction".
The next most important part is the "corrected" bit.

Now what does that really mean?
*shrug*, could be
firmware/drivers/overheating/poor-CPU-seating/DIMM-seating/faulty-motherboard/faulty-CPU/faulty-DIMM.

Hope that doesn't confuse too much. (:
