I am using a lame, cheap PC, and have replaced the OS Drive 3 times, and I am about to go onto my 4th. This has happened in the past year, where my PC's hard drive slows down then breaks, and has happened to a ssd, 2 different hdd's, and is happening to my current hdd right now. I do not think this is a cooincidence because these drives cost me around $120 each and the ssd $80, so I think it might be an issue with a different pc component thats breaking these drives. The drives are also horizontal, completely level, running windows 8.1 & 10 64bit, and the hdd's contained 1 TB each and I left around 300-400 GB of free space. I also have a cheap $25 motherboard.

Is there a chance it's malware or something overloading the drives?

Otherwise ya, I'd get a program that lets you look at your PSU voltages (or look in the BIOS) and make sure those aren't too high.

Also when they slow down, the disk is at 100% the ms responce time is around 30000-50000 and programs are using 0.1 mb/s download, or 50 mb/s download and it makes no difference to the %. I am also using SATA 3 6GB/s ports, and have tried each port, no difference.

Normally I would say it's just the drive, but when that many die it has to be something else. My guess would be that the PSU isn't good and it's sending the wrong amount of power to the drives.
