Sound like a power supply problem. All the IDE drives run off the +12volt rail and it sounds like your power supply is not up to the task of running all those IDE drives simultaneously, plus the additional +12V rail components in the case. What size is your power supply?
Try disconnecting some of those components to troubleshoot.

Check the wattage rating on your power supply. It should be at least 300 or more watts to accomodate all the stuff you have installed.

You might want to fix the caps lock button on your keyboard while you're at it...
