    Chrome & 10 tabs open in chrome and moreover 5 extensions. can be a problem you can easily see in taskman like you said .

    one problem is waiting for poorly extensions or plugins like NPAPI plugins or the somewhat better pepperflash or a lot of extensions to call up and cache data to and from a metal hdd or page file slows down the parade and it can affect the CPU also and significantly prolong what Chrome is doing .

    You probably know Chrome is an egregious single tab one running process memory hog and memory prioritizer the longer its on w/multi tabs and it takes forever to release the memory handlers on a closed tab so 10 tabs can often tax memory like 20 open tabs with 10 more tabs maybe you closed recently and so on and so on .

    You may know we have to learn how manage chrome or close it for a while now and then and then when it first gets out hand (a little ) with all that and longer you delay that , the longer it takes to get regular short of a forced re start if you don't manage your open tabs but you may know all this anyway if you been using Chrome for a default like me or just use it much . .

    Add in some windows multi tasking and a game or not maybe a 1080p video and or some transcoding and the OP symptoms and slowing to a crawl or stalling are
    entirely plausible and maybe without any remediation .
    other hand ,open 10 busy web pages and it can be like 20 quiet web pages for a while .

    I try to manage 8-10 tabs and no games on this machine (it's not a gamer) even though cold *no Chrome processes lingering* this thing can load and run 40 -50 tabs very likely only briefly.though ........ I never tried it very long OTOH 8 -10 tabs and every day windows computing multi tasking are *usually fine but that can vary .

    U sure you didn't get some malware love with a torrent ?

    OTOH how long since a clean install from media or USB and any WU in place new build upgrade or AU on that OS ? .

    Clean OS install may fix that CPU and or memory spiking seen it way more than once and it fixed that drama on these winbetas ,you have plenty of CPU/RAM d/GPU and Vram but I went over that clean install stuff already andf that PC should play newer game 1080p ,1080p *** very well

    FWIW I clean install every other winbeta beta from an ESD I save from the WU NBuild download in the hidden and temporary $WINDOWS.~BT > source folder on C:\ before ESD gets moved into a recovery partition but you have to copy the ESD before you execute the WU install newBuild re start the ESD gets shoved in a virtually hidden no access recovery partition or something when you install a nBuild via WU .
