I would suggest doing RAID10 instead and just suck up some of the storage loss. You'll get the performance at least. Otherwise, look into buying a proper RAID controller.

My only other thought, was the array fully initialized? That should take a couple days at your capacity.
Thx, guys for all the tips, best feedback forum there is, i can tell you that!

Ok, i called Intel and the guy said some bullshit that the raid card wasn't test it with that specific server board and all, just pissed me off. I don't know if the drive is full initialized, would i be able to move files to the array if they haven't been? I'm copying some files to it and its 28MB/s tops, like the ATTO bench says.
