DL380 G3 PCI Riser Cage

I have seen 3 DL380 G3 servers in the past week that intermittenly loses network connectivity. The NICs in use are Fore Runner 155MB PCAs. In all instances network connectivity will drop for approximately 30 seconds. It was brought to my attention that the PCI Riser cages have a known issue. All three PCI Riser cages were replaced, and NICs migrated to new cages. Network has been stable since the replacement. I was curious if there was a known issue with these Riser cages in the DL380 G3 servers. If a server with the suspected problem is under heavy network load (i.e transferring large amounts of data from one server to the next over ATM link)the servers network link will drop out. Thanks in advance.
