Use the Intel Controller, as it bypasses the PCI bus and frees it up for
other tasks (as does the CSA Gigabit LAN controller.)

As for stripe size, you have to make that choice for either controller.
Many benchmarks seem to like a low number like 16KB, however real-world
tests show that something in the area of 128KB is ideal, especially if
you're moving large files.
