Windows 7: Raid 0 issues using onboard ICH10R Controller

Raid 0 issues using onboard ICH10R Controller

I thought I would make a thread on this in the motherboard section as I believe my motherboard is faulty.

I opted to implement raid 0 on my system using the onboard intel ICH10R controller. Upon setting the BIOS to XHD Raid, I then configured the array using a 128kb data strip.

I loaded the latest raid drivers on a USB stick and installed these prior to the OS.

Once all installed, I booted into the OS, and started the driver installation. I then noticed that the system was "not responding constantly, and the resource manager showed excessive activity.

See below

I also noticed that the size of the hard drive was constantly changing on drive C:, when installing the drivers/software.

I thought that one of the samsung F3 drives was faulty so I ran the full diagnostic tests and both drives are 100% functional. I have installed the OS on both drives and it works without error. I also ran memtest86+ to be on the safe side and that was also fine.

Over the past couple of weeks, I also noticed that I was losing connection to my wired mouse (power still be received) and also freezes before post.

Could this be a hardware fault? Tempted to RMA the board but wanted to be sure before I did it, as I don't really want to be without a system for 2 weeks.

Thanks guys
