i have a 3ware card in my production server running a RAID5, and its never
skipped a beat.
if you dont buy a raid card (with 6 or more channels), try breaking the usage
up. put the system partitions on one controller, and build a 4 disk raid5 on
the other, and see if it behaves differently (ie, remove the
cross-controller-raid from the equation and see what happens).
