So this seems to be related to the BIOS/OS CPU powerstate control. Specifically PPC in the BIOS appears to be the issue.

Here is a link to HP advisory as it relates to a similar VMware issue (in actuality, its not a vmware issue): http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay?javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.prp_ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c03543898-4%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.tpst=ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01&ac.admitted=1408113098173.876444892.492883150

Now hilariously this SAME issue occurs on most ANY HP motherboard after a certain date (for instance, my issue is with a workstation).

If you have a workstation, go into the BIOS and disable ANYTHING related to power regulation, let it run in turbo mode, if C_states are an option, disable them.

This has resolved it for me for 2 days thus far, which is quite an accomplishment with how often it was crashing before.
