Seatools long test fail, smart ok, raid 'anomalous'

I've made a RAID-0 through the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H bios with two 500 GB HDD. Occasionally, one of them would be marked as failed during the start up and Intel's utility would indicate 'anomalous state' and give the chance to correct it.
I've unmade the RAID to check the disk. It failed seatools long test once (and passed it another time) and the smart data seems to be ok.
Do you think the matter is related to the hard drive, the raid and, is that hard drive useful for something else than a being a paperweight?
Here's a screenshot of the smart data, obtained through crystaldisk info

checked for new firmware?
edit - drive firmware, just to be clear.

The relocated sector count is high,

do not know in raid setup, but usually relocated sector that high indicate the hdd is dieing...

Too bad... it looks like the drive wants to end up as a paperweight

The Reallocated Sector Count is 0.

However, the Reported Uncorrectable Errors has hit the threshold.

I notice that the two temperature attributes (0xBE and 0xC2) have values of 21C (=0x15) and 22C (=0x16), respectively.

Moreover, since the normalised value of Airflow Temperature = 100 - Airflow Temperature, then this would suggest that the historically worst temperature was 63C (= 100 - 37).
