RAID 1 failure after drive replaced

Hey all.

Had one of my RAID 1 drives fail the other day. Replaced it with a slightly newer hard drive of the same size, 1TB, and rebuilt the RAID.

I then switched the new drive to Port 0 and the old drive to Port 1 on my Rampage III Mobo. Did this Friday. RAID is degraded and it appears the new drive has failed. It is on a different port and everything. Sound like drive problem, meaning I got a bad one, or something else.

Why did you switch ports after the rebuild? I would not move ports after you have rebuilt the drive.
