Hi,

 

It's happened three times now, twice when I was asleep and once when I actually witnessed it happen.

When I saw it happen, it was  as if someone had pulled the power plug out of the back, it was that quick.  I was typing along and suddenly zap, it powered off instantly!  It wasn't a power outage - I have a UPS with a loud obnoxious alarm, so I'd have know were that the case.  Besides, in all three instances I checked the clocks in the house and none of them were flashing 12:00, it wasn't a power outage.

 

When it happens, it reboots immediately (of course that's not instant, it takes the usual amount of time to boot up), and it's waiting at the login screen.

 

I'm getting concerned, and I'd sure like it to stop doing this.  Especially considering what I paid for this machine (around $7,000, not counting the monitor and all the extras)

 

It's a Mac Pro, 2 x 3.2 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon running 10.8.3.

 

At one point I bought more ram (32GB) and I honestly can't remember if the first time it restarted was before or after I had bought this ram or after.  Could bad ram explain it?  If so, can I test it?  Other thoughts I've had - can a failing hard drive do that?  I didn't think so but I don't know.  Or maybe a surge from a device that's connecting via USB (not all my usb devices are going through my UPS)?  Bad ram??  It'd be great it if were something simplie like a failing power supply, I really hope it's not the motherboard or CPU.

 

I'm not quite sure how to read the "Problem Details and System Configuration" upon restart (the dialog box that comes up explaining that the computer was restarted because of a problem, and would I like to send a report to Apple), but I've pasted that info below my message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts or advice?

 

Thanks,

  -Adam

    Run Apple Hardware Test. It is on the OEM DVDs it came with.

     

    Yes, FBDIMMs can but more likely to be the PSU.

     

    What else is on the circuit with your UPS? anything? as for loud... older APC? how old?

    If you want to use it for peripherals or other uses CyberPower has some nice 1500VA SMART units for under $200.

     

    Yes you can test memory, first with AHT but then with memtest - though with 32GB

     

    take out and test pairs at a time or half, run memtest in terminal with each process checking 1GB and you can run 32 windows to do the testing. A memtest CD is handy. There are some utilities that would run in the sngle user mode on startup too which is better but of course take forever to test every GB.

     

    When these happen, any unsaved changes to the directory or files that are open are lost and you should do as a minimum a Safe Boot and/or ML Recovery and repair the drive(s) with Disk Utility. Doesn't hurt to do a Safe boot afterwards as well to rebuild and remove cached and temp files and then restart to have a regular startup.

     

    Monitor your temps. Esp. the FBDIMMs but also PSU and anything else. And boost the fan rpm as well.

    how long have you used ML, Lion or since you last used 10.6.8? Did it start since 10.8.3 even?

    The panic reason listed is a communications-related problem:

     

    panic(cpu 3 caller 0xffffff801a99d383): "soreceive: sb 0xffffff8082d0fe50 so 0xffffff8082d0fde0 cc 243 mbcnt 2304 mb 0xffffff83a013b100 mbtail 0xffffff83a013b100 " "lastrecord 0xffffff83a013b100\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-2050.22.13/bsd/kern/uipc_socket2.c:1 306

    ...

     

    BSD process name corresponding to current thread: httpd

    In a Mac Pro 65lb tower, this is unlikely to be a RAM memory problem, because the machines have Error correcting Code memories. Single-bit errors are corrected on the fly. A double-bit error halts with distinctive Machine-check reason (to avoid poisoning you data).

     

    Mac OS X kernel does not experience kernel panic very often. But you are not running un-modified Mac OS X kernel, you have added all this other stuff:

    You have so many third-party kernel modifications installed that you can't expect any kind of stability. I suggest you erase the boot volume and start over with just your user data and settings from a backup. If you can't live without all that crapware, reinstall it one item at a time, testing thoroughly at each step to make sure you haven't restored the problem.
