Every since I built my new PC (Specs listed below) it's been getting very bad lag spikes that last anywhere from half a second to 6+ seconds. (Average being about 3 seconds) Having my task manager open, I see the CPU, SSD disk reaching 100% for how ever long the lag spike is. The GPU also does this, however it only spikes for a split second. This problem occurs when gaming. Minecraft to Metro Exodus full setting or browsing chrome with one tab open or looking through my computer files -it's completely random. All driver are up to date (Are there SSD drivers? Couldn't find any) I have latest Chipset drivers as well. One thing maybe worth mentioning is after getting Windows 10 64 bit installed, I messes around A LOT with spiting the drive in half to make partitions ect, just playing with it. If anyone needs more information please ask i'm probably going to end up doing a clean install to see if it fixes it. I'll capture a screen shot of the resource monitor when it spikes again.Thanks!

I have a really similar problem. Sometimes when the lag spike is really bad, the monitors even get shut down for a moment or my game crashes. Lag spikes also happen when not in a game but less intense
