Hello TPU, I was just thinking about an issue that I had and I was thinking that it would be neat to hear from everyone else about their strangest hardware malfunctions. Just the other day, I replaced one of my 1TB drives in my RAID-5 because it was the second time my WD green drive got kicked out of my RAID. A week a different drive gave an error, so I just went ahead and rebuilt the array with the same drive because it appears to be working. Then a drive errors out again, I check it and it said it was the new Caviar Black drive I used to replace the GreenPower drive that was "dying." So I noticed that some SATA power cables might not have been plugged in all the way (there was a little play,) so I pushed them all the way in. Nothing changed, a day later a drive still got kicked out. In the end, I ripped out the 3 SATA cables for all 3 1tb drives and replaced them with brand new sata cables that had come with my P9X79 Deluxe. I haven't had a single issue since. I initially made the bad assumption that the hard drives were getting old since they're about 4 years old with almost 24/7 use since I got them and have been running in RAID-5 since, but quite frankly, the SATA cables are just as old and have been moved around a lot since I've upgraded. First time a SATA cable has failed on me before. Looks like I have a new 1tb backup drive. Another time I had a 500Gb drive produce a flame right out of the IC chip on the bottom of the drive for a good 10 seconds. That was pretty interesting, but I was pretty pissed that I was now short a drive, but that is story for another time. Lets here your stories, I bet some of you have some damn good ones.
