HP Proliant DL380 G4 Slow Down

We have the above server running as a file/print server as part of our Windows domain. Occasionally we suffer from client machines freezing for around 30 seconds to a minute while opening/saving files and browsing through explorer. This problem is intermittent and happens probably once a week. We are struggling to find a problem, I have run the HP diagnostics and the disks all seem OK. The only thing I have found is that we are running an old firmware on the Smart Array 6i controller (version 2.36).

We also have a second SCSI controller in the server (LSI Ultra320 2000 Series)which controls an autoloader).

Does anyone have experience of such a problem or have any suggestions?
