A google on

"Machine Check Exception" "Kernel panic - not syncing: CPU context corrupt"

turns up 50 results (including your CentOS BZ request referring you to
this list), many of which point to hardware problems - CPU, MB (bad
caps), chipset, are all listed as possible problems.  I'd go back to the
hardware vendor if still under warranty.
