    Default 890GX Etreme 3 - Problem with RAID in Critical Status

    Hi Everybody!
    I've a 4 disks RAID 5 configuration on the Asrock 890GX Extreme 3 M.B.

    I'm experiencing a problem with one of the disks (the one on the SATA port 4) randomly disconnecting and thus leading the RAID configuration into a critical status.
    Turning off the PC and disconnecting the power line for few minutes fix the problem but I've to rebuild the configuration each time, wasting days in synchronization.

    The power supply is a 700W CORSAIR unit and the I've 4x1500 Gb hard disk.

    Does anyone experienced the same issue?

    Thank you.

    When this disk goes down could you take it out of the array by moving to another controller or another system and run checkdisk and/or reformat the drive then add it back to array and let it rebuild again?

    Next suggestion is if you could back up all data of the array and reconfigure the drives so they are on different ports or atleast swap the drive on port 4 with maybe port 1 drive and see which drive drops out. that would tell you if it was the drive or the port.
