solved! kind of! using intel 545s ssds in raid 0 only for storage, switching to my samsung 850 evo / os installed on samsung / ahci or in raid 0 on both samsungs / my os is working flawless again!

due to the fact that in intel ssd toolbox didn't have a firmware update for the 545s , maybe there is an incompatibility between my mobo and the intel ssd's new generations or specific this model ...don't know...

funny thing...worked so well on old 335 series....same os/same rig
