You jumped to the wrong conclusion in your 1st post, in this thread. So your going to finish it up by sticking to your guns and jumping to another bad conclusion.
When you start your game up the SSD is accessed and it sends the data to your memory. Once the game is loaded into the memory the SSD is no longer in the picture until you start or load a saved game. When you select your starting point the SSD will again be accessed and it will load all the required files into your system memory and when its finished/stopped you'll start playing. Until you save the game or complete a mission/reach a waypoint/finish a scene, the SSD has nothing to do with your gameplay.
One reason your SSD would be accessed while your playing is under a low memory condition and the SSD is being accessed as a page file. If this is happening then you may need to patch the game. You should also move the page file to a std. HDD if possible, if you haven't already.
I know ATI has recently released a new driver and they have also followed it up with a Hotfix. If your using, or not using this driver and or the hotfix it could be causing your problems.
Windows Update may have installed a update or driver (for any component) that is conflicting with another driver/component.
You could have malware/spyware or a virus. Yesterday you couldn't get the Windows Experience Index to run and now your game isn't working right. It sounds like you have a system conflict and it could be Windows, a driver, a update or even an obscure program that may have replaced a commonly used .dll file.
If something is wrong with a hardware component I would suspect your memory, motherboard or you may need a bios flash. And having the "newest or latest bios" isn't always the best bios for every different system configuration. I have the EVGA Classified E760 motherboard with a i7 920, every bios released for it since the 980X was released has resulted in a reduction of performance or system stability problems for me. I'm using bios version 44 and the newest for my board is 77.
Last but not least, you have a i7 920 and the Noctua NH-D14 and a 3.2GHz overclock is causing you problems? It sounds like you have something wrong. What are your temperatures? Post a HWMonitor screenshot. What motherboard are you using and why don't you have it listed in your sig? Post some screenshots of CPU-Z (all the tabs). You used Intel Burn Test to test for stability? Use LinX
instead. Run LinX for 20 minutes (not 75) with the "ALL" button enabled, with HWMonitor running (post this HWMonitor screensot).
