X120E Multi Core Warning -The hardware is not functioning properly. What now?

Ran the Thinkpad ThinkVantage Test and received a Warning on the CPU Multi-core test.

 

The hardware is not functioning properly. To correct the problem:

Turn off the system.

Detach the power cord and wait for one minute.

Re-attach the power cord and re-boot the system.

Re-run the test.

 

Performed the above, still receiving the warning.

 

What next?

Have you contacted Lenovo Support? The only thing I can think of is either a straight-up hardware defect or maybe cooling fan blockage of some sort. Could be the RAM, though it's unlikely. Still, if it consistently has this issue, and something like Prime95 errors out on one of the cores, you may need to RMA it.
