E-SATA External Drive causes Hardware Malfunction Blue Screen in DL360 G6

I recently purchased and use a Rosewill RX-358 eSATA External Enclosure to house a Seagate 1.5TB SATA hard drive. I tested the enclosure and it works just fine on every other machine when using the eSATA port.  This enclosure comes with an E-SATA to SATA adapter which you can place in a PCI slot.  I used this and connect the SATA cable to where the DVD-ROM port is on the motherboard.

 

What happens is, the server will run for some time (roughly an hour) then will randomly go to a bluescreen with the following text:

 

          *** Hardware Malfunction

 

          Call your hardare vendor for support

 

          NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error

 

          *** The system has halted ***

 

Does anyone have any idea why this would happen?
