Title:

Computer is really slow and can hear static but it vanishes w/ restart

Text:

My custom PC has strange issues I haven't been able to figure out and I was hoping someone could help.

When starting it up for the first time every day, I usually hear static in the audio, no matter what I'm listening to. Also, sometimes the PC will suddenly become EXTREMELY slow even after exiting out of everything. The mouse cursor becomes extremely sluggish.

The problem is always fixed by a simple restart of the computer.

Specs:

Intel i5-3570K CPU 3.40GHZ with 4 cores

AMD Radeon Ghost HD 7950 GPU

32GB RAM

360GB SSD , 1 TB HDD

2 Monitors

Corsair Watercooling System for CPU

Seasonic X Series Power Supply

Many, many fans

Fatality Gaming Gear motherboard

Windows 10 OS is located on the SSD for quick startup.
