Looks more like a power problem, it's affecting multiple disks in different controllers, could also be SATA cables.


I found a possibly loose molex to SATA connection that hopefully fixed my issue. If I find other issues in the future, I'll start replacing power cables.


Thanks for looking!

If modular PSU, be sure to only use cables for that specific model. There is no standard pinout for modular PSUs and many have fried disks using wrong cables.


It is not, but thank you for that heads up. I have another system (not a server) that is semi-modular. I'll remember that. 


I have some SATA expansion cables I took apart to remove the 3.3v wire from using this guide: https://forums.serverbuilds.net/t/guide-3-3v-sata-power-cable-mod-3-3v-wire-removal/9806


There's a chance I messed something up--though all I did was remove a wire--so I'll try another cable if I have additional problems. Think I'd just need to put tape on the 3.3v pin for some of my shucked drives.
