So I installed one of these:

When I formatted the drive I had severe performance issues, since then anytime I do anything with the drive I get those issues. I ran a benchmark and got 9.1 MB/s write and 2.67 MB/s read.

Additionally none of my other drives impact system performance. I thought it was a bad drive and had it replaced, the issue persists. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

I'm going to try a different SATA port.

And I resolved the issue, one of my SATA ports are apparently bad or otherwise not working well.
