(late) UPDATE: I figured out the grounding issue. DON'T USE BLACK PAINTED SCREWS INCLUDED WITH CASE! Notice in the attached picture, I have continuity between ODD and PSU GND. Unfortunately, I did NOT have continuity with PSU metal and PSU GND! I did some grinding.... still didn't help. Switching PSU screws to standard bare metal worked perfectly.
