Everything has sped up, and up until now, I wasn't having any problems, so I assumed I had done it properly. Then, I went to fire up GTA IV, which I run through Steam, and it froze before I could even get into the game. I had to CTRL + ALT +DLT to get out of the game.
Remember, I enabled AHCI after the Windows installation. I had heard that it could be problematic, but up until now, everything had been going smoothly.

Well, if you that's the cause, have you tried disabling AHCI? Also, does it happen only for GTA IV, or for other games as well?
it happens for all games, as well as any embedded videos on websites, besides youtube. I disabled AHCI, and now it all works..
