No ssd connects to cpu! So what SSD are you actually talking about?
the one I connected most recently is the Samsung 860 EVO 1 terabyte SSD. the other one I got years ago and its the other type of SSD (it connects somewhere I just dont remember what exactly).

How are you monitoring cpu temperature? Cinebench is showing your processor speed at 3.6, should be reaching closer to 4.6 all core. I'm wondering if it's thermal throttling. 51c is ok but at what speed?

Check with Coretemp and keep an eye on cpu speed & temp while testing.

An additional drive wouldn't mess with anything. Accidentally bumping something (cooler) while working on it might.

5 min into the test and the temp is at 46 C using MSI afterburner, and on task manager it says its using 99-100% of my cpu (slight fluctuation). does indicate that my cpu isnt the problem? UPDATE: I actually scored an 8485 score this time

Cpu usage appears normal yes but the question was what speed is the cpu getting up to?

Can you run Userbench please and post link to public results page.

I would take out the western digital ssd and put the OS and everything on the big 860 evo

240 GB is too small for windows installation with updates and it may be to full And causing performance issues
It doesnt let me move it, but its fine if i just copy it over then delete it from the 250 SSD right?
