The problem is almost certainly RapidLeech and not your set up. So long 
as you are transferring/zipping files that will consume large amounts of 
CPU. Downloading large files can take significant amounts of time.

We don't allow RapidLeech to be installed on our servers for this 
reason, and for the potential legal issues associated with illegal file
