RAID 10 Write policy enable or disable in R710 for Exchange server

I have Dell Poweredge R710 with 5x 600GB 15k SAS HDDs with 32GB ram for 150 users.
I am going to configure RAID 10 + 1 HS for dedicated Exchange server.
Should I enable Write Back (default enabled) or keep it disabled as best practice?

I am aware of the performance increase but in case of power failure, hardware failure blue screen seems we are running into some serious problems and data loss. I have several PE 2950 servers write back enabled and did not have any problem but this time I'd like more make sure for this dedicated exchange server.
