The Intel RAID controller on the motherboard does not perform very well on any raid level. Also, you need to buy drives tat are certified for raid use, (at least 7300 rpm and lot f memory buffer n drive) otherwise soft errors will cause you to always be in recovery mode.
The sub $200 large drives do not do well, also avoid the "green" drives.
