In general I hate RAID 5 for production. See http://www.baarf.com/ for more info. [UNDERSTATEMENT] RAID 5 is not the most performing [/UNDERSTATEMENT]. This can indeed be the root cause. I assume that if you remove RAID 5 and only stripe (only valid for test environments) you will see a dramatic IO improvement.

Kind regards,
