Internal HD has very slow write speeds

HP Recommended
Z8 G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello I am working with a newly delivered Z8 G4. Overall the system is working fine but I installed a 6tb Seagate Barracuda (new drive) and the write speeds are terrible (under 1 mb/s). I also noticed that my front case fan would spin up significantly after teh drive was installed. I took the drive out and installed it into an external dock which works and the speeds are much better though still about 1/3 what they would be installed internally. Case fans are also back to normal after removing teh drive. Any help is greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

I did contact support with no real resolution... seems strange to me that a machine of this level would not be able to accept a common mainstream hard drive. Thank you for the reply!
