    My Mac Pro 2009 is nearly 3 years old, haven't had any problems with it but in the last day i've had a crash and a kernel panic. 1st time a grey box came down over a quarter of the screen and the machine froze and I had to hold th power button to restart.

    2nd time I had a kernel panic with the following error, I haven't added any new hardware for months. The kernel panic I got is as follows:

    Give "Repair Disc Permissions" a go (in Disk Utility application)

    Any idea what could be the cause?

    Try removing Temperature Monitor including any kernel extensions seeing as that was the process in use when you had the panic.

    specifically this group is suspect..

    The difficult thing about resolving kernel panics is that you need a method to reproduce the panic or some predictable time frame in which the panic occurs. That way, you can have some way of knowing if changes made resolve the problem. Thus far you seem to have reported 2 KP's and the first one may not have been logged. The initial "crash" was also a kernel panic.

    Starting in safe boot will not load third party kext.

    The kernel panic was caused by the RAM stick(s). I had kernel panics of this kind when I installed 16 GB RAM sticks from OWC. I had to RMA twice to get the RAM sticks without giving rise to kernel panics.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone

    Will do a full diagnostic tonight

    I ran the extended test hardware utility on the apple disk and it came up with this error any idea what it is?

    Heard this might be a sensor failure on the logic board, anybody else heard this?

    You have a defective thermal sensor on your logic board.

    Hard to tell which one unless someone runs ASD (Apple Service Diagnostic) on that box, and only Apple technicians have access to that particular disk.

    The kernel panic was caused by a machine check exception. Given that, it was caused by a hardware issue and not a software issue. Since your AHT disk brought back an error directly relating to one of the thermal sensors on your motherboard, I would say that something is definitely broken or malfunctioning physically.

    At this point, there really isn't anything you can do. Best to take the machine in for repairs and let someone with access to ASD run a proper set of diagnostics on the machine- it'll tell them right away what isn't working and they can go from there.
