Sorry for the late post, but I have an extra server and work with it and
only now have time to go back to this problem...

Thanks to mike.salehi and Rasmussen, turns out that one of the
memory stick was bad, but basically, I removed all memory and place it back
in one-by-one to see which was bad...also pull both CPUs and try one-by-one
as well...
