It happens without warning, and it disappears without a trace, it's the weirdest thing and everytime it happens I can never figure it out, it's just as if my entire pc is slowed down, but i've checked for virus', i've checked my hardware, i've updated drivers, etc. and then within a few days my pc is back to normal, i'm at my wits end because whenever it happens it is the most annoying thing! any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks all.
 
FIrst step would be to see if clock speeds appear normal (3.x GHz under load if not OC'd) during the sluggish phases, and that temps are normal, and not forcing downclocking under load....

If you have a different SSD to reinstall to fresh, that would eliminate any glitched OS/driver/botched application, and any chance of a faulty SSD if all was well afterward.... (you could retest original SSD at your leisure afterwards)
