      Hi,

      Yes will look into this, I am going to re-install the OS.

      The v3.5 ROM must have slipped in when I swapped Motherboards.

      I will swap over from RSTe to RST, can't remeber why it was RSTe as the system was built along time ago. Must have read somewhere...

      Thanks for the input.

      RSTe mode (as above screenies)

      Driver Software set installed was Intel RSTe Drivers & Software Set v4.6.0.2116

      I have Intel RSTe v4.6.0.1048 listed in Programs and features

      And BIOS ROM in the option ROM states v3.5.0

      Is that what you wanted?

      Well....

      Finished initialising, write speed still very slow.

      Now it has happened again. This time I have screenshot the exact error, except this time I could not set the disk to 'Normal'

      Intel RSTe Interface




      After a reboot I have




      So I cleared the MetaData as the disk was not moving back into the array.
      I was planning on creating a partition on the failed disk so I can test it out of the array to see if it is slowing everything down.

      But have this in diskmgmt.msc and RST interface.

      Diskmgmt.msc


      RSTe Interface




      Here is the SMART info for GOOD and BAD disks is the BAD one failing? Can you tell from the SMART info.

      GOOD DIsk in ARRAY


      BAD Disk out of ARRAY



      I could try and RMA the disk but it appears online and healthy. That may not fix the issue.
      I want to test the bad disk out of the ARRAY first.

      Any advice!


      EDIT!
      Found the error in eventvwr.
      Looks like a disk timeout for 2 minutes with disk resets issued, ARRAY marked as BAD then the disk cameback online.

      OK..

      There you go. Just takes an independant eye to suggest some troubleshooting that I have not thought of...

      Put a PSU just on the 3 Archive drives and Bang!



      This is while I am still initilising. Read speed is back up quite a bit.

      Will wait until initilising has completed and do some further testing / troubleshooting / tuning.


      Next step is to make sure my New / OLD motherbard setup has correct Firmware / drivers I guess!
      Just as I did with the old one.

      Thanks. Have a coffee on me!

      I used to overclock in my 'youth' but stopped that game a loooong time ago.

      Yes the i7 and x79 is from my golden of (only 5 years ago) gaming.

      PSU I have not considered.

      Have downscaled from 2 x 750W PSU to a single one running the 3 x Seagate archives and the GTX980Ti.
      Before I had 4 3TB and 6 2 TB on 1 supply and the system SSD's and Gaming card on the other.

      I am going to do some power tests and let you know.
      I still have my meters kicking around.

      You maybe onto something here.....

      I did not even consider that!

      Thanks for the welcome, actually been using the forum for a couple of years now, just never had a issue, all the guides have been great.

      Yes, not knowing... This is the difficulty especially for me now!

      RAID has been fine for 3 weeks after the Motherboard change.
      BUT, I did not check write speed when I swapped it out, everything appeard fine.

      SO could a difference in RAID firmware be the case?

      Last week it went offline, not disk errors. No data loss.
      Set back to online, I am looking in RSTe Help for the exact statement RSTe interface gave.

      Write speed down to above post.

      No hardware change since the motherboard 3 weeks ago, not OS change, no driver change.

      9 days and still initilaising 66%. :-(
