Processor assertion error

I have a customer that has several new servers that are all throwing the following error:
Processor ---> IERR - Assertion
Failure Message: Processor Internal Error

Everything I can find says it's DIMM, but the customer is pushing back wanting us to replace all the CPU's.  Can anyone back me up with this?

What is the make of the motherboard? Single or Multiple CPU's on the motherboard raising the exception? The fault could be power supply/Motherboard/CPU/Memory.  It is normally CPU or a failing system.

It's a dual CPU Supermicro X10 series motherboard.
can you run a cpu retest from the bios? try swapping the cpu's to see if it follows a specific cpu
researching further Supermicro suggests contacting support
I ran through their website and it's ambiguous as to the error (CPU, memory, etc.).  I was hoping someone has seen this on other platforms and had a solution.
if you swap the cpu's does the error follow the cpu? or are both cpu's showing the error?
Sorry for the delay. I was on vacation and this issue went to my backup.  We currently have a crashdump file being examined to see what might be causing this issue.  I'll update in a day or so when the dump file has been reviewed.
