The speed of a hard drive is controlled by the on board hard drive controller (on each drive) and the voltage it sees. Since it is unlikely that you've seen 3 bad controllers then the problem has to be the power supply. You need to check that the voltages are not high. There isn't much you can do other than replace your power supply. If this is the problem then you may be seeing problems in other devices connected to the power supply. It may have also stressed other parts that will fail sooner than expected.
Having said that how are you measuring the overspeed condition? The 7200 drives make a lot more noise and the seagates are a bit noisier than others. So you have to be sure that the drive is actually over speeding and not just making more noise than you are used to. Having had problems before it is pretty normal to get a little paranoid about it happening again. I haven't seen this lately but the few times I have it was actually caused by the outlet power fluctuating and had nothing to do with the computer itself. So you may want to check the volts on the outlets for a while. It might only fluctuate a few times during the day so you need to use a meter that records highs and lows. If this is the cause then you need to use a battery UPS. These charge the battery which then powers the pc. It isolates those from any fluctuations in the power. And if the power goes out then you have a few minutes to save everything and shut down.
