  1. Sure it is the drives, the spike is more likely to kill the controller on the motherboard?
  2. M not sure about the motherboard cos m not using it, since it was giving a starting problem of error 67 until the spike [ INTEL DX79SI board]. that hdd was from another computer n after spike i took it back to its computer found tha it doesn show up and not spinning.i boght new hdd put in but still ,error 67 start for 2 seconds n turn of.now new bord its fine ? now wat about hhd pcb ?
  3. Swapping the board might work, not 100% but likely.
