Hey guys,

I use an Asus M5A99X EVO and got 5 Western Digital 2TB Harddrives plugged on Sata 2 to Sata 6. Sata 1 is used by my SSD. After setting up RAID5, I installed Win7 with newest drivers from Asus Website. BIOS was updated too.

I get a lot Bluescreens and System Crashes since then, about 1-2 per day.
Thats real anoying and its allways ahci64.sys, which is the AMD RAID Driver.

Is there any Solution for my Problem to use RAID ?

Try this: http://nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

It shows up the bluescreen and mybe indicates the problem ressource

(ASUS is sometimes not the best vendor....especially the bios'es are not very well tested. I wait for a funktional bios since over a year..random bluescreen or hard resets)

On case with an Asrock board, there was the Board/Controller/internal RAM broken. I only get Bluescreen with activated Cache option.

An easy test (benchmark) tool is CrystalDiskMark.Test the RAID5 volume with (de)-activated Cache and PreRead Options. Maybe there is the problem hidden.

you don't say what version of the driver your usin the latest for SB950 is 

 

Driver Version 3.3.1540.35

 

Also @ Vegan stop falling for FUD those red series drives are no better than WD Blue/Black HDD's when used in RAID arrays the one I wouldn't use are any green HDD by any manufacturer

Hard disks seem to be less and less desireable in a RAID as opposed to SSD which are slowly coming down in $

I am not sure what causes the BSOD, if the OP can upload the c:\windows\minidump folder somewhere, I can take a look
