Thank you all for the suggestions.  I will grab a test suite or two
and do some burn in testing over the upcoming weekends.  These
machines are new, built from scratch.  I've been building systems for
over fifteen years and haven't had anywhere near this amount of
trouble which is really aggravating!

I realize garbage in equals garbage out and some of the chosen
components are pretty low-end, but I did spend close to six months
researching the components, and couldn't find substantial evidence to
dissuade me from any of the choices.  The only parts not new are the
250G seagates where are basically left-over parts from an old server
that was upgraded.  They're all known-good as that server gave me no
trouble through its service life.

Kind Regards,
