EDAC MC0 error in dmesg? Should I be worry?
Got a new server and the dmesg show tons of message below:
EDAC MC0: CE page 0x37cb3, offset 0x800, grain 128, syndrome 0x7, row 0, channel 0, label "": i3000 CE
Googling it and suspect bad RAM, but after the DC swapped all RAM sticks with the new one, the error message still exist and always generate by the kernel system.
Anybody know what cause this one?
Thanks alot in advance.

This page will tell you a lot about EDAC: http://buttersideup.com/edacwiki/Main_Page
Quote from their page, with possible reasons for errors:
* Your RAM is bad.
* Your Motherboard is bad.
* Your CPU is bad (for CPUs which have the memory controller built into the CPU core, such at the AMD Opteron/Athlon-64).
* The connection between your motherboard and your CPU, or memory module is bad.
* Some of your hardware is being operated outside of its design specification, such as:
o Things are being run too hot.
o Timings are being violated (e.g. running memory too fast, or bad DRAM clock generation).
o Supply voltages to the critical compontents are too high/low (this may even happend very briefly, as a supply "spike", or "droop").
* You have seen one or more "Single Event Upsets" - see SoftErrors.
* Memory ECC check bits are not properly initialised by BIOS prior to Linux boot.
* The EDAC module is buggy.
* Memory loading is exceeded.
* The powersupply is insufficient.
