DL380 G2 SACS Locking up

I have just installed a new DL380 G2 Cluster server using SACS. I have the cluster and shared drive space up and running. I have performed successful failover testing. When I installed the unit I load the latest HBA drivers and Firmware on the SACS, 5i controller and G2. My problem is that about every 2 to 3 days the SACS controller locks up hard (you can't even view the front panel messages they the cursor controls don't work). If shutdown my cluster servers and reboot the SACS controller everything appears to come back online. The only thing that I have noticed that is unusual is that the 2 times this has happened so for is that the disk error messages seem to start in the event viewer at about the same time. Has anyone heard of this type of behavior before? I think this is probably a hardware issue but I want to make sure I am not missing a configuration problem before I escalate this case. We have also upgraded the cache on the SACS controller to 512MB.

Thanks!
