I have just gotten myself a H77 board with 3x WD Red 3TB drives. After putting them in RAID 5 and formatted with GPT, i am getting a write of around 50~60MB/s and read of around 160MB/s. is this the typical speed that i would be getting with Intel RST?

Depends a bit on your cpu, anti virus and what else is running, but yes. Always remember, it's a software raid5!
