    SATA is a DMA accelerated serial bus, gaming i/o can't push it hard enough to make the cpu the point of bottleneck.

    Something seems to have been wrong with that drive, a cable or its operating mode, perhaps a fault was pulling it back to MWDMA or PIO.

    edit
    ah, the Corsair Force LS 240 had power management issues with Device Initiated Power Management being too aggressive, some peoplewith drivers that behave like this would put the bus back to IDE since it disabled the feature.
