How to get status of my Gigabyte Raid?

I have a Gigabyte motherboard, GA-X58A-UD3R, running Windows 7. I have a SSD for the c: drive but a RAID 1 array using the motherboard for my D: drive. The RAID option from the motherboard I'm using is via the "Marvell 9128 SATA Controller" (uses the GSATA 6_7/IDE Controller slots).

Has been working fine for about a year (well seemingly working fine, didn't actually pull out drives to test the RAID after building it). Has a problem now with the symptom of very slow access (really slow, takes 15 minutes to boot up, slow accessing anything on the drive - so something is really wrong, except if you wait it eventually does give you the data)

QUESTION: How do I actually check the status of the Gigabyte RAID array? i.e. how to get diagnostics, and even something as basic as an indication of whether one drive has failed? Where do I get this? If I try to run the Gigabyte RAID Configurer (whatever this is) I get "GBB36X Raid Device is not found"? Is this the software I'd need to get working to get a picture of the raid status?

Note: Going into BIOS the RAID setup seems OK. And in Device Manager there are no issues highlighted.

    Go into the Marvell RAID Utility to check the status of your array.
    See page 103 of you motherboard manual for instructions.
