No the issue was heat on the diskboard thus the damn thing tought it was 
failing ...as soon as it indicated something more usefull e.i. Fan 
Failure on disk-board I knew what to do...so I simply moved the 
disk-board to a location that has a dedicated psu to keep it cool and it 
just worked without complaining ever since... if only the original 
message made more sense ...it was not a failure as sush but the board 
was getting hot so it started to disfunction.
Because now that message & all other error messages have disapeared and 
I only moved the board.
