Solid performance, but buggy drivers

Adaptec RAID 1430SA 2240900-R SATAII PCI Express x4, 4 ports Controller Card, Kit

Pros: Solid performance in RAID 0, easy setup through BIOS and Windows Vista x64 installation, good price for a brand-name product.

Cons: I had an issue where running the version 1.5 Win64 drivers caused system lockups whenever I used a program that monitored system stats (e.g., Riva Tuner, ASUS PC Probe, EVGA Precision). After speaking with someone at EVGA and doing a lot of troubleshooting, it all came back to an issue with the RAID card (something to do with PCI bus scanning). Downgrading to the version 1.4 drivers resolved the issue, and I haven't noticed any decrease in performance by using an older driver.
