Upgrade to RST

Hello,

I have a ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard which is using the Intel X58 Express Chipset / ICH10R - with (3) 1TB Western Digital Black HDD's in a RAID 5 for data storage and (1) Crucial 256GB SSD for Windows & Programs.

 

I have been having some issues lately with my Matrix Storage saying that one of the 1TB WD HDD has been failing. I have contacted WD and had them replace through warranty 3 times already. With the new HDD, It rebuilds and works awhile then fails again. These issues started around the same time I updated the software for the Matrix Storage in July 2014. Are there any "known Issues" with this version?

So I think I would like to upgrade from the Intel Matrix Storage (Version 8.9.0.1023) to a even newer version. According to ASUS I have the most recent driver downloaded, which I know isn't true! So can I upgrade this to the new RST and if so, which version? From what I found on the internet the ICH10R will only support up to 11.7? Is this true or can I load a newer version?

I have everything backed up again to another external HDD also ;-)

Thank You So Much!!!

Thanks for joining the Chipset community.

You could upgrade Intel Matrix Storage Manager to Intel® Rapid Storage version 11.7. See the link below to get the latest version for your chipset model.

There were some problems with version 8.9 reporting random drive failures, check this link http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/CS-030818.htm Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) — Random Drive Failures After Installing Version 8.9

Thanks Allan!

The Intel Storage Manager just reported another failed hard drive tonight! *LOL*

Should I mark it the failed HDD as normal and rebuild before I install the upgrade?

I think I will...

Thanks Again!
