Or I simply don't have the power to run this many harddrives? I mean, technically, only two of them were connected. The other one is a external USB.

But now I have three, I ran OpenSuse and didn't have any issues like that.
Normal fan can be used for about 2-3 yrs only. So problem should come from the fan not the SMPS i guess... What is the model you were using?

FSP Group AX500-A 500W is what I have. I actually replaced it. I had to hardwire the wire into it, but I guess it pays off being a electrician =)

I also cleaned out the layers of dust, so since then it's been doing it a lot less. I think I just need a new PSU, truthfully. But until I get more work, this one has to do :O
