Most of the intermittent problems I've had in the past were hardware related.@pastrychef
Even though I had stability with two cards I was not happy with that I would rather solve the issue instead of placing a bandaid on it. It is a hardware problem as you have suggested from the beginning and I believe it is a faulty Motherboard.
I bought a new board Gigabyte Z370 HD3 it was the first on the buyers guide; and a new CPU I3 3800k just for good measure. I think together I think they were like $230. Popped the Vega 64, Hard drives some memory and a bench PSU. I did not put it in a case just left it on the cart next to me desk. it ran for 3 days without incident so I shut it down and changed out the CPU to the 8700k currently it has been 2 days without incident with the 8700k. I made my sincerest attempt at making it crash and so far have not been able to with this new MB. However, it has not been put into the case that is a project for this weekend after it has pulled a full week of stability.
Currently the I3 CPU is in the Gaming 5 board "the defective one" under windows running wow and rendering stuff in Revit, and running iTunes. I have yet to be able to crash this board under windows. I will also test the gaming 5 board in this configure under Mac OS this weekend and see if the same issue arise with a different CPU.
I am also not ruling out that it has something to do with the case only because I previously had a board similar to yours at the start of this journey and it also crashed "Could be for different reasons". It became my GF and has been running under windows for sometime without incident.
Hopefully I will have an answer as to case or Mother board after this weekend never had a faulty case before, but also have never had hardware that worked most of the time normally. Never experienced an intermittent problem that was not software.
