Is there a tool I can use to troubleshoot my drive to see if it's not performing properly?

It's either the CPU or HDD, because when I view a media file such as a TV show during the lag, I get awful sound distortion, you can tell it is glitching, spiking severely, but temps look fine so it's definitely not a heat issue.
1) Try different a differ power plug
2) Try a different sata port
3) Try a different sata cable
