Default RAID 0 Error

Well, I realize it's been an exceedingly long time since I've posted here, and that my first post after so long probably shouldn't be one that's asking for help...

but it is.

Some of you may vaguely remember my build, and the quite enthusiastic build-log that I created here. It hasn't really gone anywhere. Such is life.

On to the problem I'm here for. As stated in the title, there's an error involving RAID 0.

I have a 3 x 640GB WD RAID 0 array, and on booting the system about three days ago, the RAID status screen presented a bright red "ERROR OCCURRED" next to drive #3. I thought all was lost, and that it wouldn't even boot (come on, it's RAID 0. Picky doesn't cover it)... but here I am, and it's still running. My problem is, even though I know a number of things that could be done, I'm afraid to execute any of them without first asking for advice. I don't even want to turn the bugger off.

According to things like HD Tuner, something less than 2GB, but more than 1GB, of one of the HDD's is actually damaged in some way.

"HD Tune: Intel Raid 0 Volume Error Scan

Scanned data : -266451 MB (1920 GB)
Damaged Blocks : 0.1 % (2 x 732MB)

Assuming a 50x50 cube chart, left-right, top-to-bottom reading orientation...

2 red 'Damaged' cubes appeared in blocks 149 and 150, respectively."

Anything anyone can think of to help me out here would be appreciated.
