I've got the drives stored in one of these. All 5 bays are being used.

I shut the machine down and I noticed the bay required two power plugs and I had two from one power string plugged in. I unplugged one and plugged in another from a different string.

I also pulled each drive out and blew out the dust.

I've booted the machine back up and I've re-added the WD Green drive to see what happens.

This is much more promising.

The rebuild is going much, much faster, I haven't seen it go below 10 MB/s, and it's averaging about 20+ MB/s.

I hope this fixes the constant HD failures.

Just following up: This was not enough. After looking up some details on the drives I was using and the peak power usage between all 5, a 350 watt was not enough. I bought an Antec 550 watt and now it performs much more stable than it ever has before.
