AW: PE2650 / Perc 3Di crash

I have a 2650 with:
    OS disk (volume container)
       Seagate ST318406LC (REV A01)
    Data disks (stripe container)
       Fujitsu MAM3367MC (REV A1-21)

which does not crash, under any circumstances, and machines that do:

    OS disk (volume container)
       Maxtor OSW925 (REV A00)
    Data disks (stripe container)
       Seagate ST336753LC

    OS disk (volume container)
       Maxtor OSW925 (REV A00)
    Data disks (stripe container)
       Maxtor OSW925 (REV A00)

So we're starting to suspect the disks to have something to do with it 
(or potentially the firmware REV)

Any others that recognize this? ;)
