What method did you use for testing the memory?  

For testing the hard drive I usually write a large file of random /
semi-random garbage that I have the md5 for, then md5 what's on the
disk.  Over and over, usually for days when testing a new server.  The
CPU will cause many other problems should it really be acting up.  While
it's a remote possibility the CPU is causing the problems, it's more
likely another bit of hardware, if not a kernel / fs bug.

I'd read the article the other poster mentioned, and try a different FS
to see if the problem goes away.  I'm not quite as leery of Gentoo as
the other fellow, but I probably wouldn't be using it in production

Do you have an unusual setup?  HW/RAID/LVM etc?
