Join Date Aug Posts I woulnd’t have done it this way, i would have installed from scratch on a existing raid 5 array. For the record, the system is stock standard with no overclocking. Greetings Just about my specs: There is some difference in the processes where is appears data is never completely written out to the drives on shutdown and therefore they always come back unclean and result in a degraded array. Makes for a bad day.

On commanding a shutdown the system would exit windows but fail to power down, and on resetting one HDD would be reported as failed and the array as degraded. The last time was because the power connector on one of the drives was accidently unplugged.
The system should be stable when in a RAID 5 array using Write-back cache, and it isn’t at all, at least following a shutdown. As far as i understand, you did a migration from stand alone to Raid 5. Greetings Just about my specs: The time now is Join Date Aug Posts Is your Raid Array green? Actually this was an easy as advertised and apart from the RAID problems I’d give Intel a big tick for the ease of use rakd the matix solution.
Firstly, is this expected behaviour for this mainboard and the ICH9 controller in general? That looks good to me.
What does the Intel Storage screen say at boot up? The first time was because of a couple of blue-screen reboots trying to stabalize Vista.
For the record, the system is stock standard with no overclocking. Results 1 to 6 of 6. I got all of my initial problems resolved that caused the blue screens and everything is stable as a rock.
Strangely it is after a restart. Makes for a bad day.
This would occur on each shutdown attempt. Sorry not having helped you more.
Copyright c Tweak Town Pty Ltd. I understand that you want squeeze all out of your system but i think this Writecache Setting is maybe too experimental and should be used with caution. As for migrating to a RAID5 array, I had the system dual booting between various versions of windows until I settled on trying Vista There is some difference in the processes where is appears data is never completely written out to the drives on shutdown and therefore they always come back unclean and result in a degraded array.
Join Date Sep Posts 5. Still, the system is usable without write-back, which is better than some on here and I generally like the capabilities of the DS3R board. Too easy to loose everything all at once. While I understand the potential problems of data loss on unexpected power failure if using write-back cache I would still like this as an option that doesn’t result in multi-hour rebuilds after every shutdown.
But i have to admid that i never had the idea of changing it. I just took a look at my settings and you won’t beleave it: I woulnd’t have done ag-p35c-ds3r this way, i would have installed from scratch on a existing raid 5 array.
I can raix having read something about disabling writecache especially on raid configs, but I lost the exact context about it. Please report all spam threads, posts and suspicious members. After much tweaking it seems that the system is stable ONLY if the Intel Matrix Manager is the same version number as the raid firmware currently 7.
