I think I just found a solution. On my desktop with i5-2500k and Intel  
Cove Ridge motherboard, everything I needed to do was to update the BIOS.  
Currently running with uptime of two days and not a single glitch. Before  
that, the whole system was getting stuck for about 15 seconds (and more,  
sometimes not recovering at all) every ~20 minutes causing for example  
unmounting of filesystems etc.
I hope it will solve the problem for you too,
