Intel ICH9/10R raid 5 drive failure

Intel ICH9/10R raid 5 drive failure

About a year ago I was using the native Intel ICH9R Raid 5 an Intel P35 based motherboard. The system was running Vista x64 and when one of the drives failed Vista blue screened on boot until I had figured out which drive had failed and removed it (a rather nerve racking hit and miss affair). The same thing happened some months later on another similar system so it wasn't a once off. This wasn't the robust raid 5 drive failure behavior that I would have hoped for and expected.

I went ahead with the Intel Matrix RAID with a set of four WD 808GB green drives and lo, and behold! a couple of weeks after setting it up one of the drives failed. Thankfully, unlike my previous experience, it degraded elegantly and didn't crash the OS (Windows 7).
