Intel RST, RAID 1, configuration question on mixing HDD's

Asus P6T6 Revolution
Intel RST in RAID 1
2xSeagate ST3100528AS 1TB

I've had issues with the Seagate ST3100528AS drives failing (3rd one just went...) and I'm thinking of going to another mfg HD. Maybe Hitachi... Can I mix a 1TB HGST Ultrastar A7K2000 with the Seagate 1TB ST3100528AS. Specs are similar.

Other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Yes you can mix drives with RST. The WD blues are another choice for good HDD.
