Secondary hardrive is slow.

mobo Asus P8z68-V/GEN3
1st HD Samsung 830 120GB SSD
2nd HD Hitachi 1TB


I installed win7 on the SSD and then installed secondary hard drive. I installed all the drivers for the mobo. Then secondary drive it is very slow to install anything on it. I have both SSD and Hitachi drive connected to SATA6 ports. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking of going to Intel to get the chipset drivers from them instead of ASUS.
