That sounds very much like the classic "chronically overheated southbridge
eventually fails" syndrome; which is also common with laptops.
Several years ago I started gluing small but beefy heatsinks on
anything I deemed too hot and have had NO failures since that point!

I am able to revive them after several reboots, but only to have them die again a day later.
