Yep, sounds like the Intel fakeraid software screwed the pooch. Have you tried the rebuild option in the bios setup screen? Otherwise, you're probably going to have to blow it away and restore from backup.
By the way, you can have all of the drives run the smart self test at the same time.

I can't see anything in the BIOS about rebuilding raid.
Nor within the Intel Matrix Storage Manager, only options i see is
1. Create Raid Volume
2. Delete Raid Volume
3. Reset Disks to Non-raid
4. Recovery Volume Options
I have no back, my backup plan was raid haha

Do you think these hard drives are safe to use?
The only thing i can think of doing is breaking the raid and recreating it.
That way I will lose everything on it though
Also would it be better for me to get a proper raid?
such as a 3ware 9650, i think thats proper raid?
What is a nice cheap solution for decent raid (5)?

Ive done a long smart test on all now.
the one that raid reports as a offline member passes SMART but has the following.
Raw_Read_Error_Rate = 1
Multi_Zone_Error_Rate = 2
Thats the only thing i can see from them all, im not 100% sure what im looking for to be honest
