    Intel Matrix Storage Controller RAID5 randomly marks drives as failed

    paynster

      I currently have 2 arrays, one is a RAID5 with 4 WD Green 2TB drives configured in a RAID5. The other array is a RAID0 with 2 WD 160GB raptors which holds the OS. The RAID5 keeps randomly marking anyone of the 4 drives as failed. I mark it as normal, then the RAID rebuilds, which takes forever. All works ok, then after one day or once it took 2 days, it happens again, and one of the drives gets tagged as failed, I mark it normal and the process repeats. This has happened to all 4 of the drives and it is driving me crazy. This is a brand new build, Windows 7 64bit, all drivers and updates are current. ver 8.9.0.1023 Looking for solutions.Thanks
