Do the drives spin up?

yes all spin up. but you got me thinking and I tested my power supply showed -5 was out so I'm going to replace that first it's 7 yrs old anyway I'll let everyone know if that works or not?? just not sure that would knock 4 drives raid 10 offline unless it powers the raid controller we will see. But thanks for jogging my brain would not have tested the P/S because drives all seemed to power up well time will tell. Anything else you think of glad to hear from you. thx again

Besides the power supply you may want to test your controller as well if you can (assuming it's an add-on card).

Just incase I did not tell you the raid controller is not a stand alone card it's in the M/B
