You must make sure that the operating system (at least most of time)
writes a multiple of 4KB at a 4KB boundary.
You achieve that you need to:
- align the MBR partition (which you didn't)
- use a power of two RAID stripe size (which you did)
- use a power of two file-system block size (which you have to anyway)

BTW: based on my past experience(*) I would recommend a stripe size
of 128 sectors (not 64) and file-system block size of 16KB with
a fragment size of 2KB.
