SMART isn't that accurate and might not show up when freshly done though.

SMART data whilst on RAID isn't available apparently, though my last RAID 1 set up, which was 2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 drives, came up with a SMART error. That is when I decided to start afresh with a new Windows/1TB drives. Didn't exactly work out

Though the drives as non-RAID drives both pass at the moment. Quick/Extended tests passed.

The only worry I have is that since the drives have just 0's on them, there's not really much to test with...

Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch
