Not sure if this has been posted but as of 02/10/2012 Intel has a new Rapid Storage Technology driver version #11.0.0.1032 WHQL
I believe they're for the x79 chipsets, but I installed them for my x58 mobo and it took care of a few problems I've been having with the previous drivers. Seems like my system is snappier than ever also.

Notes:
1. Known Issue is defined as a potential RST issue that has been replicated internally by the Rapid Storage Technology team but has not been root caused to be an RST defect.
2. Microsoft Windows Vista* (32 & 64-bit) is not supported on Panther Point based platforms.
3. The RAID OROM version for this release is 11.0.0.1339, the driver and user interface version is 11.0.0.1032.
Note: An Intel core branded CPU is required to enable the Smart Response Technology feature beginning with this 11.0.0.1339 OROM release.
4. This release supports the co-existence of the Intel® Smart Response Technology caching solution and the Intel® Rapid Start Technology solution on a single SSD.
Note: An RST 11.0 OROM is required to support this configuration
5. This release introduces a new enhancement referred to as HDD Power-Up in Standby (PUIS) supporting version 2 of Intel® Smart Connect Technology. Refer to the OEM Technical Guide within this kit for details pertaining to this feature.
6. This release includes both the RAIDCFG32 & RAIDCFG64 utilities which are contained in the RAIDcmd utility component of this kit.
7. When an ODD is in the Zero Power state, some ODDs may disappear when a hardware re-scan is initiated via the Windows Device Manager. A second hardware re-scan conducted before the Zero Power Idle Timeout value is reached (default is 60s) will return the drive to an OS visible state. This behavior is believed to be related to the length of time an ODD requires to become ready during power on from the zero-power state.
8. Microsoft* .NET Framework 3.0 is required to be installed on the system in order for the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology User Interface to install. Note that not all Microsoft* Operating Systems have .NET 3.0 installed by default. Refer to the Microsoft* website for details.
9. A Vista OS Installation using a Matrix RAID Array on a system with a 9.5 or newer OROM requires the user to F6 a 9.5 or newer driver.
10. Possible issue where RST is slow to start on Windows XP or Vista with .NET 3.0
Issue description: Under certain network conditions, on systems with .NET 3.0, the RST application and notification icon (a.k.a. tray icon) may take about a minute to start.
Resolution: Contact Microsoft* to receive the hot fix described by KB article 936707 or upgrade to .NET 3.5.
11. Possible Issue regarding File writes on Windows XP with Service Pack 2
Issue description: System hangs, ERROR_NO_SYSTEM_RESOURCES or ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_QUOTA observed when writing large numbers of files on Windows XP with Service Pack 2.
Resolution: Contact Microsoft* to receive the hot fix described by KB article 888413.
