Has the RAID fully initialized?

Drives are very active during parity setup RAID5 initialization.

the noise starts as soon as the drives spin up after the p410 has initialised before i have even get to setup.

should i complete the setup and see if it goes?

I would go into SSA and see what the array status is.

Then I would finish setting up disks.

sorry what is SSA

- found it Smart Storage Administrator Diagnostics Utility.

 

my server is a n40l running omv how do i install or run ssa in this setup?

- ok ive found a offline version so ill install to usb and boot from this.

 

 

the array is up and running but in order for omv to see the disks i had to create them individually. and them from within omv create the array

P.S whilst omv was creating the array they sounded perfect as soon as it was complete the same noise is back.

update 

cant get it to boot the usb as i believe due to no uefi support. - is there another way to boot this via usb or any other?

I would not use the P410 with OMV. Use a LSI based SAS HBA.
