Partition # does not end on cylinder boundary.
 
Running CentOS 6.3
Areca hardware raid 10

fdisk -l

reports multiple partitions with the following description.
"Partition # does not end on cylinder boundary."

Disks are 512 byte sector size.
Raid stripe size is 64K.

but if I use

fdisk -lc
(-c Switch off DOS-compatible mode. )
I don't get any warnings.

Should I reinstall? (performance hit?)

No, that warning can be safely ignored. See for example this:
