This is kind of a unique problem I'm experiencing. I recently built my rig, which has 4 Kingston Hyper X 120GB drives in RAID 0. This system has been running fine for about 2 weeks, internet, streaming movies, BF3. The past few days I had been experiencing some odd cold start issues. Upon power up, the computer would shut down, would pause 3-4 seconds, then power back on by itself and boot as usual. I have not seen any instability prior to this. I actually figured this was an unstable overclock. So today, I adjusted some bios settings in attempt to fix the cold start up issue. After making some slight tweaks to voltages, I was greeted with this... you'll notice that volume 0 raid array failed, and port 3 drive is no longer a member disk of that array hmmsmiley02.gif

I have tried clearing the bios and reseating the drive. No luck. Tried calling Kingston to get their input on the matter, but their techs were out for the day and I am trying to resolve this as quickly as possible.

Right now I am under impression that the drive may have faulted or something went kookie during initial install or bios and I am going to need to recreate the RAID array and just reload everything. If this is the case, I will likely jump to RAID 5 to ensure something like this doesn't put my out of commission again.

I didn't have much important data stored as this was a system loaded less than 2 weeks ago, but the hassle of having to install Windows 7 again, it something I'd like to avoid.

Any ideas or suggestions?
