Hello,
Yes, I did replace the PSU about 6 times. I had the same problem with 4
similar machines (all the same), and in one of them I tried two
other different power supplies, so there were a total of three completely
different supplies tested. All of them were 450 Watts, except for one 500
Watt that I tested..
While, my 'feelings' tell me that the PSU is the issue, I have been
looking more to grounding and SATA cable than anything else. But there is
one HUGE however here... If there is a communication failure, it should
not cause a crash in the kernel, this should be fixed!

Bubble Memory, n.:
A derogatory term, usually referring to a person's
intelligence. See also "vacuum tube".
