I have 12 disks in my tower and when running the PSU voltage drops causing RAID failure. Aside from adding a second PSU, does anyone know of a solution in a single unit?

You haven't told us what the system components are or what power supply your using now, so no, sorry can't suggest anything.

Determine PSU requirements for your system based on 2 HDDs, then add about 100->150 Watts to the +12 V rail. And BUY a quallity PSU. Always do a google for a review of the PSU you intend to purchase. There a a good Number of PASUs out there that are best used as door stops.
