A port multiplier just divides available bandwidth between more ports and performance will suffer when all attached drives are in use, as you discovered. As mentioned in the first post of this discussion there are the 9201-16i, 9305-16i, etc. LSI 16-port cards. They will not be cheap but perhaps you can find a good used one somewhere. Grrrr not shocked that their was a clear cause to my issues, I have been trying to do this as cheap as possible being Christmas time and this upgrade wasn't really planned, I just got lucky with a new work laptop replacing my personal desktop giving me the ability to upgrade my 2014 server grade build I had been using.
