I don't think time is relevant. Did you get a patch or install some program? update graphics drivers?

Verify integrity of game files through steam.

Do you have any mods installed? - if yes, uninstall them.

Make sure your power profile is set to maximum performance and make sure there's no extra settings in Catalyst Control Center.

Also, check your temperatures please, cpu and gpu both (hwinfo, hwmonitor, msi afterburner, etc)

this type of thing is almost 100% of the time mod related becuase it starts checking the compatibility of mods and verifying and so forth right when the main menu opens

Yep exactly. Well it depends if you installed them from Steam workshop or from Skyrim Nexus. If Nexus then you will need to manually delete the data files, and if steam workshop them just delete them from Skyrim launcher.
A much easier way than deleting them all though would just be to not load them (uncheck them in launcher).

Much easier to delete with workshop. Try just unloading all mods you have, including HD Texture pack if you have it. (the problem could be caused by a 2K texture pack from workshop conflicting with Beth's own HD Texture pack).
