1/month is not a concern, IMO. the main reason to run mcelog is to
avoid the situation of having enough corrected mce's that you run
into uncorrectable or undetected ones. 1/month is a very low rate.

NB is used here in a very general sense - it's referring to the onchip
memory controller, not a literal external chip. I don't think there's
any involvement of video.
