It could be or could not be. Depends upon the quality of the power
supply, the age of the hard disks (older ones seem to be more of a power
hog). All power supplies are not equal, some cheapo "500W" supplies
start to fade before delivering a full 500W. What problem are you
seeing? With all that hardware in the box I might be thinking that heat
is your problem unless the box is well ventilated.
