HDDs consistently fail, do I have a faulty backplane or something?

I am extremely worried about the situation I am in. Within a very short time, I have lost 6 hard drives. Some times they will fail INSTANTLY, like I'll boot the server up, it will say the drive has failed and can't be used. I have tried switching the HBA to no avail. The drives that are only failing, only fail on a certain row of my chassis, which is something along the lines of a Norco RPC-3216. Is it possible that the actual backplane is causing some sort of short circuiting or something that's causing the drives to fail? I've currently lost 3 Seagate Barracudas (bad purchase), two WD Reds and a WD Red Pro. When I moved my SSD it also failed. When I moved my IronWolf it started showing errors. 


Anybody got suggestions?
