    ICH10R Raid 5, Speed slowly drops

    aaa88

      Hey, i have a Raid 5 with 6x WD disks. Whenever i transfer a file to or from my raid disks, the speed starts of very good, but then it slowly drops. When i write to the disk, it starts off around 50-60mb/s, but after a couple of minutes it's down to 8 mb/s before it starts to rise again. It's the same thing with reading from the disks, just higher numbers. Starts off around 450mb/s and then drops down to 200mb/s.

       

      Anyone know what could cause this?

       

      As you can see here:
