    It looks like a RAM error. You aren't giving much information, so we don't know how many RAM sticks you're using or what motherboard etc..

    I had bought four 4GB sticks when I built my newest box and had one bad stick in the bunch. I tested each stick in RAM Slot one of the motherboard (your documentation should tell you which slot that is) until I found the bad stick.

    With more info, you will probably get better advice.

    Dear god, that is the most sickening dump I have seen in a very long time.

    I would refit the ram sticks into the sockets (since it's newly built), and do a memtest. If that doesn't work after a couple of cycles, I'd say you have a broken stick (Whichever held address 0x9c044000ca080a13 at the time.
