FYI, i'm using the same system. I would guesstimate that you
have a problem running out of ram (sounds silly, but yes) due
to the large amount of ram you have.
Here's what i have in mine, currently running 5.2
but i have run 4.7 and releng_4 on it.
Definitely i would suggest running memtest86 on it for a bit [at
least 24 hours], but with the ECC, memory errors would have to
be gross to be noticeable.
