You could upgrade Intel Matrix Storage Manager to Intel® Rapid Storage version 11.7. See the link below to get the latest version for your chipset model.

There were some problems with version 8.9 reporting random drive failures, check this link Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) — Random Drive Failures After Installing Version 8.9
The Intel Storage Manager just reported another failed hard drive tonight! *LOL*
Should I mark it the failed HDD as normal and rebuild before I install the upgrade?
I think I will...
