I was having similar issues - my units would lock up after 6-12 days of 
usage.  I did some thermal management (added fans and blocked off air flow 
to make it go where I wanted).  I was using onboard RealTek NICs and changed 
those out with the same board but Intel NICs.  I also put in a good quality 
RAM.  Since then I have not had any issues - I am up to 20 days now (best 
I've seen for a while).

I'm not sure if my problem was all heat or combination of heat and RealTek 
or what.
