Default Filesystem read errors


I'm hoping someone can help me debug some intermittent read errors I'm seeing? If I read a 2Gb file from disk multiple times I see a corrupt block about once every 10Gb - damned if I can figure out why.

My setup:
11 x 500Gb drives in a hardware RAID-5 array
U160 SCSI connection from the RAID to an Adaptec 39160 HBA
The RAID array appears in 2Tb slices across SCSI, so gvinum to glue it back together:
# gvinum l
3 drives:
D d1                    State: up       /dev/da0s1a     A: 0/2097141 MB (0%)
D d2                    State: up       /dev/da1s1a     A: 0/2097141 MB (0%)
D d3                    State: up       /dev/da2s1a     A: 0/575053 MB (0%)

1 volume:
V storage               State: up       Plexes:       1 Size:       4657 GB

1 plex:
P storage.p0          C State: up       Subdisks:     3 Size:       4657 GB

3 subdisks:
S storage.p0.s0         State: up       D: d1           Size:       2047 GB
S storage.p0.s1         State: up       D: d2           Size:       2047 GB
S storage.p0.s2         State: up       D: d3           Size:        561 GB
Have to admit it took me a while to get all this working (I'm far from a BSD guru), so I'm kinda lost how to debug it - how do I go about figuring out which side of the SCSI cable the fault is on?

As a (possibly) simpler solution, is there a way I can tell the filesystem to validate checksums when it reads a block from disk and re-read if the checksum fails?
