Is there any SMART Tool, that will allow inspection of the Individual drives in the raid array ?

The currently installed SMART Tool, the Intel Matrix Storage Console, will only report when a drive >have failed< and will not allow reading out the individual status messages of my 6 x 1.5TB in Raid 5.

Hardware :
- Motherboard : 1 x Asus P6T6 WS Revolution (specifically the ICH10R as the raid5 controller).
- Harddrives : 6 x Seagate ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 rpm drives.

I am specifically interested of any pre-fail messages, as it sounds as 1 drive is making "click-click-click" noises, which to me normally signifies early drive death (at least on several IBM(now Hitachi) drives this was the case.

Though I am unable to determine which one it is, and I dont really want to disconnect each individual drive in offline mode and check on another motherboard to see each drives status.

You can download the Intel SSD Toolbox which will display the smart values for all disks (at least on my RAID 1 setup). You don't need to have a SSD drive to use the tool.
