hardware test for Intel SR1560SF server running ESX 3.5

I have been experiencing psod issues with an ESX 3.5 server.  Unfortunately it is a production server.  It is loaded on an Intel SR1560SF server.  I've contacted VMware and they are telling me it is a hardware problem.  I've contacted Intel and they are telling me that they do not have a utility that will test the hardward to find out which piece of hardware is bad.  The psod happens very randomly (sometimes every few days, sometimes a week or two and sometimes 3 months).  

To make sure I have the most up to date drivers and bios, do I just use the linux 9.0 downloads as they do not have an ESX download and the OS Independent download states it is for a windows preinstallation environment.

What recommendations do you have for testing hardware components?
