While trying to sync I got a "block checksum mismatch" in my debug.log file. Here is the last 30 lines. You can see that it happily downloading block, then it gets a network unreachable, then it has a fatal error:

*** System error while flushing: Database corrupted

This could most likely be attributed to faulty RAM or storage device. You will have to sync again. If corrupted again, consider testing/replacing your components.
