    Ahh ok, well glad to hear you have found a solution anyway.

    How much are those controllers?

    Google finds two prices: "unavailable" and "bit under $400". Btw, Areca has a model with almost identical hardware specs.

    Dedicated processor and cache do make a difference with RAID5. And the card is on PCIe x8. Now, what was the bandwidth of ICH10? Better than AMD chips have, but not sky-high.

    PS. Found a 3510 review. One that includes SSD drives too.

    Very very expensive. Got it from Amazon for $349 delivered.

    Ouch! Guess that is acceptable if you need RAID 5 though, not sure I could convince myself on that for RAID 0.

    I was looking at the Dell Perc 5i's a while back, a lot of people use those because they are good and cheap

    Having lived with it for several weeks now I'm really glad I bought the RocketRAID. No more drive drops and wow, it is really really fast! Way better than the on-board ICHR10 solution.

    I too had lots of Greif with Intel integrated Raid10 (4 x 500gb sata seagate) on the GA-EX58-UD5
    I was worried it was common, but it turns out not to be.

    I had many drive failures for no reason, one really bad drive failure from bios updating. and my system would grind to a halt, when playing video or music for periods of time longer then 30 minutes.

    Long story short though, It was that my bios on auto was unstable (seeing how I got my rig when the platform was less then a month old, I can see why). With the excellent help of LSDmeasap my configuration is flawlessly stable, Even to this day I can run long prime burns and pi and linpack without issue.

    Although I got turned off integrated raid from the experience, Im quite confident that if I were to try it out again it would be great since my system is now fully stable.

    A card is good and all (i recommend them over integrated no doubt) but you should be sure that your system can at the very least run 10 linpack passes without residual norm inconsistency, 3 superPi 32M runs without errors or crashes, and can prime blend test for a couple of hours, to be assured that its stable.

    I never have any issues with RAID 0, surprisingly since it is the most prone to corruption.

    Now, high overclock pushing (with failures) often lead to rebuilds on my RAID 1, but never on the RAID 0?

    There is nothing to rebuild in rAID0. No redundant information to show that the redundant information is not coherent.

    Ya I get that, but I would expect it to fail to load or crash if the RAID 1 is corrupting. Generally though, even when it would tell me that about the RAID 1 array, once it was done checking it wouldn't find any errors or have to correct anything.
