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
