What size power supply do you have?  With that many drives you might be
exceeding the power supply specs.  

It could also be a heat problem.  Since it happens in two different
version of Linux it sounds like it is not an OS problem.  

Run memtest to check your memory and make sure you have sufficient
cooling.  

I had a system that would occasionally hang.  Had pretty much ruled
everything out except heat as a problem.  Added several fans to the
system as well as new heat sink.  Finally replaced the mother board and
it has not hung since.
