    RAID 5 rebuild time



      I am planning to build a system with S3210SHLX motherboard. I want to create RAID 5 on 4 disks of 2TB, Core 2 Duo 7400 & 2GB RAM. My OS drive will be a 250GB SATA disk & will not be part of RAID. I would like to know the what RAID controller is onboard & what is the typical rebuild time for RAID on a disk replacement.

          Make sure that you are aware of MBR 2TB limitation, however GPT does not have this limitation.


          Check this link for RAID information.



          Kind Regards,

            This may be off topic in this thread, but I'm trying to find out why my RAID 5 rebuild is taking so long.

            Ich10r onboard RAID 5 with 3 identical 500gig HD.  I accidentally disconnected the power to 1 drive and when I rebooted I got a degraded error message.  I reconnected the power to the drive and so far the Matrix Manager Console is indicating that its "restoring parity" 3 DAYS and is only at 70 % complete.


            Any ideas?


            Any good resources?


            This is a XP Pro 9550 w 4 gig and the system is unusable because it's so slow.


            Thanks in advance!
