Pro Tools 10 hd issues

Hey everyone.... I am having some stability issues—weird, right? Anyway, I have a Mac Pro 1, 1 with 2 owc ssds: one for pro tools, and one for recording; 32 gb ram; 10.7.5 mountain lion, pro tools hd 10.3.5, and a BLA XB Mod 002. So far getting this up and running has been “fun” to say the least. I’ve done tons of troubleshooting and forum searching which has taught me quite a bit, but optimizations, reinstalling drivers, etc., aren’t getting me anywhere...

Issue: every time I switch the h/w buffer size pro tools either crashes unexpectedly, or it starts clicking and popping randomly until I click something, then crashes—I stick with 1024 samples for mixing and 128 for tracking. This has never been an issue until now after taking my rig down from home and moving it to the studio. I’m going to try putting the FireWire cable into the other slot on the 002, trash prefs, and do a nvram reset, but after that I am at a loss...
Are there any suggestions as to what else I can try? Maybe put the drivers from version 11, better quality ram, voodoo dance? I know pro tools can be finicky, but I’ve had a stable system before with wayyyyy less of a computer... I know there will most likely always be some problems, but it would be great to knock this one out.

Thanks in advance.
