i have TS120G SSD that my windows installed on it and 1T WDC hard drive that my games run on.
do you think it can be problem in the hard drives?
Could be, since the issue seems to appear when loading levels. I assume you're installing games on the HDD, and there are no stuttering otherwise?
I usually keep my HDDs defragmented every now and then when I crash in AC Odyssey that's not related to overclocking.

What you are experiencing is normal, and occurs when you load modern games from HDD.

Most developers these days expect their game to be on SSD, and do not optimise load times for HDD.

SSD is very cheap now, you can find a good 1TB SATA SSD for less than $70.

Buy a bigger SSD, transfer all your games on to it. Remove the mechanical hard drive from the PC. Throw it away.

There it is. It's normal for HDDs to load levels slower, hence the stutter. Shouldn't happen when nothing is being loaded, though. Either failing HDD (yes, it can happen with no warning signs nor SMART detection, I've had a few) or there you go, being limited by the HDD.

If it bugs you, get an SSD. If it doesn't, no sweat, just keep in mind what I mentioned about drive failure. No need to throw away the HDD, it can still be used for a backup or something, I keep old documents (also on cloud) and non-critical files on my HDD now.

Also, there's this point:
