Default PC starts to lag and spike after a while, can't tell what's causing this...

Hey guys. So as the title says, after a while, my PC just becomes slow. Programs open slowly. The reaction times of actions just drop dramatically. I get a bunch of distorted sound, the worse the distorted sound is when viewing a media file, the worse the glitching is.

I'm assuming it's some sort of CPU problem.

How would I be able to diagnose and troubleshoot this? I find it hard to believe it's my CPU, it's an i5-2500K at stock clocks, no OC what so ever.

I have reformatted and that did not fix the issue.

The PC is fine, but after leaving it on overnight, it seems I always come back to a PC that is just slow.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post in advance.
