Default Server Crashing

So looking for opinions here.

I have a server on a rack in my basement that I use for plex. Recently it's started crashing. Nothing shows up in the event viewer to indicate a problem, no BSOD shows on the monitor I have hooked up to it and when it crashes the numlock/capslock key do not change the indicator lights on the keyboard. The fans and all other indicator lights still are active/on.

Now I had seen this before when a PSU was crapping out it'd keep the fans on but everything else died so I swapped out the PSU Sunday with a known-good unit, reseated the RAM and ran memtest (which passed). This hasn't helped.

The crashes are random. sometimes within 30 minutes of booting, other times it can take 2 days to crash again.

My plan now is to start taking out ram sticks as some of them are new to see if that helps but I'm looking for other opinions/experiences as I start to test.

Full specs:
Asrock ATX DDR4 X99 Extreme4
6 x 8GB sticks DDR4 2133
intel Xeon CPU - 18-core at 1.8 Ghz
HighPoint RocketRaid SAS Card
8 Hard drives.
EVGA 8400 GFX card
