Rampage 3 Extreme - RAID 1 lags

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have a lags with RAID1 arrays:

1) 2x Seagate Barracuda 500GB
2) 2x Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

The Windows 7 is installed separately on RevoDrive x2 240gb.

So after some time (5 minutes or more) when I'm trying to access any files (or open a folder) on RAIDs (any of them) it has a delay for about 5 seconds.
And during this delay I can hear the noise coming from HDD's. Sometimes it even make windows to lag as well.

Previously I haven't had this problem. So first I thought that some of the disks a failing. But this happens for both Raids and looks more like it sends them to sleep.

Still I wan't able to find how to find any solution for this problem.

Does anybody know how to solve it?

Thanks.

Check windows' power options for the time to turn off the hdd's. it should be set to never.

Yeah, they set for 20 mins. Thought it standard, as I never changed that.
Especially even setting it to High-Performance it stays on 20 mins.

Will check it.

Thanks
