Electric buzz from time to time?
Once in a while some program that features AV crashes. It could be an open firefox page (with a paused youtube video etc...), or a scorewriter like musescore, or a player like WMP or foobar (either when streaming or converting). Then every program that you open would have graphic and/or audio glitches. On the graphics side I usually get solid colored rectangles/squares, and if it's the sound I hear electrical humming/clicks through the speakers. The only way this can be fixed is through a restart.

Is this just a case of some buggy program causing a driver crash, or is it because of permanent data corruption because one ore more of the connected HDDs is dying?

Run  SpeedFan to get processors and graphic card temps, and please list your hardware.  Maybe they are overheating.
