    Yep cpuz is reading the correct memory speed there, ie the actual speed not the "doubled" value.

    Sounds like the issue is with the SSD, thoes voltage values are fine and well within range.

    Have a look in the event viewer. Where it can be found does vary but normally it can be found in control panel - administrative tools - event viewer. Or start - run - eventvwr.msc Look for red warnings or alerts about errors.

    Re: Stuttery PC

    In terms of voltages I was actually referring to the negative voltages as seen in this screenshot:



    These seem quite out of whack and I was wondering if ought worry about it.

    I think speedfan must be wrong tbh. As far as I know your PC would not even run with those voltages. Although I don't think the -12v and -5v are used at all on a modern PC.

    Re: Stuttery PC

    My first thought would normally be Malware. You do have Kapersky, but no individual AV catches everything. It's worth trying a couple of independent checks. Try the online Trend Micro Housecall and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.

    My next culprit would be the PSU. Speedfan should be getting the results from the BIOS, so I'd be worried that it was losing power under load. Clearly the VCore2 reading is actually the 3.3V one, so just ignore that bit - it's the 12V one you should be worried about. This may well be a sign of a unit that's on its way out. I don't know how old your particular unit is, but the design is ~6 years old. Put the PC under full load and see what the reading is.

    My third culprit would be your software. What's running in the background? In particular, given your examples of slowdowns, what's accessing the internet?

    As for the voltages, they vary depending on what software you are using to read them. However, the voltages shown in BIOS are within spec so nothing to worry about (as long as they stay that way under load). I'd recommend double checking your drivers. Something similar was happening on my PC and it turned out to be the JMicron driver that was causing it. Since I wasn't using it, I disabled it in BIOS and removed the driver. Problem solved.
    Your CPU temp do seem a little high for idle - that could be a problem when the CPU is loaded.
