When im downloading something my ssd is overheats in crystaldisk and the average speed is 5mb/s (even my 15yr old hdd is faster ) , every 15s it peaks to 150 mbs/s, but goes back down almost instantly.
how do i fix this?
 
What is the make/model of your ssd?
Where is it mounted?
Continuous writing puts a heavy load on a ssd.
Once the input buffers are filled, the data needs to be written to the underlying nand blocks.
If the ssd is small, or near full, this can take a long time.
Cheaper qlc based devices will not be as capable as mlc devices.

When a ssd is hammered with sequential activity, it can heat up and throttle.
That is usually while reading.
If you think heat is the issue, see that the ssd gets cooling airflow.
Possibly an aux heat sink can help.

240gb green adata
its mounted behind the cpu
so i bet its and airflow problem
 
What is the make/model of your motherboard?
I do not understand "behind the cpu"
Does that mean on the back side of the motherboard?
How full is the ssd?

ADATA is hot high on my list of high performing ssd devices
