System Cpu Between 50-70% and need to find out why

Dear Steve,

Unfortunately the problem is the same with it on and off. When I have 
it off I do not see the pagezero but the problem is still there with 
the high cpu usage ont he system side.

I am grasping at straws now so any advice would be appreciated.

I am starting to focus on the areca card (1130d) but this seems to be 
in range with what is expected.

I am a bit puzzled to see this:

last pid: 15615;  load averages: 46.49, 48.45, 
42.60                                                     up 
0+09:58:37  10:58:55
680 processes: 76 running, 573 sleeping, 9 zombie, 21 waiting, 1 lock
CPU states: 26.8% user,  0.0% nice, 66.2% system,  7.0% interrupt,  0.0% idle
Mem: 2328M Active, 5794M Inact, 424M Wired, 20K Cache, 214M Buf, 7116M Free
Swap: 8192M Total, 8192M Free

    11 root             1 171   52     0K    16K RUN    2  92:45 
22.46% idle: cpu2
    13 root             1 171   52     0K    16K RUN    0 122:15 
22.07% idle: cpu0
    12 root             1 171   52     0K    16K RUN    1 100:22 
22.02% idle: cpu1
    10 root             1 171   52     0K    16K RUN    3 115:02 
21.97% idle: cpu3

The idle and system is slow, the system is at 66% system cpu but the 
itle numbers below show up as 20+% percent.
