Can you monitor ambient temperature in switch using SNMP (like mrtg?)
That could explain faults off-time.

Switch is named FastIron CX in brocade support. Upgrade to latest code following all instructions before calling them.

I would upgrade it to 7.4.  

Backup your current image, tftp or ftp the new image and reboot.
