ml 350 G5

I have a ml 350 g5 server. I just purchase 2 Western Digital RE4-GP 2TB hard drives. The raid controller is a smart array e200i. I have the OS (Windows Server 2008 R2) installed on 2 sata 160GB hard drives that are in a raid 1 config. I have the 2 WD RE4-GP in a raid 1 config also that I'm storing my data to. The WD RE4-GP's keep failing within an hour to 5 mins of each other. I keep rebuilding the array and it will work for about 24hrs or so then both drives fall off. I have all firmware updated. Drives have been tested with WD's diag software and test good. I have also disabled the timer on the drives for parking the heads.

I'm lost on what to do next.... Any ideas?
