Default Unaturally Slow

hey guys,
so heres the problem, im currently working on a pc that boots up great and runs programs very well. But it randomly slows down, when i open my task manager it says my explorer.exe is using up 80-100% of my cpu... then after a few minutes its fine again. I've run Memtest86 and CPU Burnin on it and both tests came back fine.... any ideas?
