    The click of death. Almost as famous as the BSOD. Did they ever work at all? How new is new?

    Go to Western Digital's website and get their diagnostic tools.
    Run it and see what what it says.

    Do the drives show up in BIOS and what controller are you running them on?

    Edit:
    Just FYI, those drives were scanned and recertified before I sent them out.
    I'm not sure that the WD Lifeguard Tools work on drives in a RAID array...I've never tried that.

    Yeah they show up in the BIOS, in the wd tools they only show up as a logical drive, I stuck a fan inbetween the two drives and the problem seems to have gone away, only time will tell now, they didn't feel hot. And did some major defragging to see if that had any effect on the crashing.

    How are your drives mounted in the case?
    Raptors are reputed to be noisy (although I never found them to be ) and hard mounting them may just be amplifying seek noises.

    What kind of noise do they make?
    A constant clicking. A click here and there. A wine. A very loud constant wine and click. ?

    If it's baffles you, try to make a recording with a mic and host it on http://www.putfile.com/ to give everyone an idea of what it sounds like.
