What is causing my server to crash?

What is causing my server to crash?  Here's some of my event log info:

What type of box is this? Dell/HP/IBM/SUN or is it a custom build? Either way, do you have access to a diagnostics utility via either the POST process or a bootable cd? Most vendors nowadays will include one. This will allow you to troubleshoot and search for a hardware issue, which seems likely in this case.

This server is a custom built - here's some belarc info:
System Model
Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 Edition Service Pack 2 (build 3790)   Intel S5000VSA
Enclosure Type: Server Chassis
Processor a   Main Circuit Board b
2.33 gigahertz Intel Xeon (2 installed)
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
24576 kilobyte secondary memory cache   Board: Intel S5000VSA
Serial Number: QSSA75001070
Bus Clock: 1333 megahertz
BIOS: Intel Corporation S5000.86B.10.00.0084.101720071530 10/17/2007

Thanks for the post! - I'll see what kind of bootable media came with the mobo.

What is the model number of the CPUs you saw the failure on? (e.g. 5410, 5425, etc.)

Thanks for the posts.  I split the points because unfortunately the company that owns the server is no longer and the task is out of my hands.  All posts seemed quite logical and I would have to assume it was a cpu, so thanks for giving the feedback.
