Probably the area of the processor that was performing the calculations at the time of the over current/voltage spike? I suppose it depends on the architecture of the processor itself (i.e. what processor do you have and what socket is it)? Oh wait, I think I know what you mean, I'm thinking it's the L3 cache or the general purpose registers that are damaged during, say, overclocking or voltage spike.

And yes I know that this is in no way helpful, but it is absolutely precise, useless but precisely correct :)
