The problem with crash reports is they are seldom specific enough to pinpoint the problem. System processes are so interrelated that it can be difficult or impossible to trace the actual problem down from crash reports. At best, they seem to provide some general guidance. For instance, CPU issues are very difficult to separate from memory issues because those two components work together as practically a single unit. So, conceivably at least, your issue might be a PSU that is out of spec and not providing consistent voltage to the CPU but the crash report indicates the problem was the CPU.
