Now you can run kernel compilation from script, that will compile,

the only problem. I agree with you that thermal problem should be put
on rest for now.

I'll set up the machine to run kernel compiles all night, it's already
running in fact.

Well. That didn't take long. About 35minutes. Crash.

I was running the following:

cd /usr/src/linux
while true
make mrproper
zcat /proc/config.gz >.config
make -j6

plus a little homegrown memory-exerciser that really just exercises
memory in a straight forward way.

so far you have changed power supply, mobo and perhaps the cpu fan.
most probably the replacement components are not at fault. the major
components that have still not been physically replaced are:
cpu, ram, disk, disk cables, os. You need to try an alternate on each item.
If you have a spare hard drive, wipe it out, get a new cable and install
windoze without any RAID software. If you meet with success, try 10.3 without
the RAID, then with the RAID. If you still have crashes with new disk, cables
and os, try a new memory stick. If that fails as well, you will have enough
documentation to argue for a free cpu replacement.
If you still have a problem, call an exorcist.
and please keep us posted.
good luck,
