I'm running 4x2TB SATA + 1x250GB SATA on my N40L with a 150W PSU.

I believe that Tom correct in his speculation about GPU drivers.  That particular Silverstone model is designed to feed power to a high-end GPU, not to lots of disks.  The quantity of disks combined with temperature-driven falloff could very well be leaving other parts of the system starved for power.
