    Installed a new motherboard

    Asus M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard

    And also reinstalled Windows 8.1.

    Basically the problem im having is when i move a file form my SSD to my HDD the speed will gradually drop to 0/s bytes or around there. Then my computer will run at the same speeds so everything is running at 0/bytes - 100kb/s until i stop moving the files then it goes back to normal.

    I have done tests with Seagate tools and Samsung Magician on both my SSD and HDD everything is fine.

    Is their something im missing?

    Sata mode is AHCI.


    Asus M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard
    GTX 660
    AMD Phenom X4 965 BE
    Samsung 180 SSD
    750 Corsair PSU

    I've tried changing the ports and sata cables before no difference.

    Doesn't work in safe mode either.

    Checked if their were any bad sectors came up all green

    Tried completing deleting everything on the HDD, partitions etc. Then added a new partition. same problem.

    I'm thinking maybe there is something i should be doing in the bios.

    And while its copying the rest of my computer will completely slow down to the same speed so my entire computers speed will be 177 kbs or so until i close the transfer then it will return to normal.

    Seemed to have fixed it by re-updating by bios. Updated with the same version i already had but now im getting 100mb/s transfer speed just copied around 30gbs to the hdd and its took about 4 - 5 minutes.
