Is it possible my RAID 0 is causing data corruption?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok i've just after setting up my 74gb raptor with my OS on it after moving over from a RAID0 setup with 2x250GB WD Caviars. I've also changed my mobo over from an abit nf4 to the DFI expert.

Before I was getting loads of corruption with large downloads in the order of a few gigabytes, I did some research and there where 2 possible causes, my nf4 nic or the nvidia raid controller. On my new mobo I have the option of 2 NIC (the marvell and the nvidia nic) i'm using the marvell to stop any possibility of the corruption caused by the nvidia nic. But i'm thinking about going raid again, but i'm worried that all my corruption problems will start up again if I do.

Has there been any evidence that a RAID 0 setup can lead to corruption? Has anyone else had these kind of problems before or has heard of this or solutions?

A few possibilities.
1. Are they on the NForce chip for stable bus speeds... recommended over the others.
2. Your OC may be unstable.
3. Did you do a full install or a repair from the MB change? Repairs can be an issue.

sorry to bump this but I have another question

For the first few weeks of use the drives in the RAID (2xWD Caviar 250GB SATA2) had both the legacy and SATA power connectors connected. I know, I know... school boy mistake, but these where my first SATA drives and they where OEM so there was no instructions with them. However they worked fine, until someone said to me "DEAR GAWD, unplug one of those power connectors"... now they still work fine, but how would I troubleshoot if i've caused any damage to them that might of caused this data corruption. I've ran S.M.A.R.T through speedfan on both drives and they both have no errors.
