I see what you mean by superfetch. I guess our current use case was that I'm using it lightly during the week for browsing and code and the weekend was used mostly for game that were heavy on ram use so that must have had an impact on the algorithm.

But now that we had to stop playing games since the driver for using ps3 controllers doesn't work anymore (maybe since 1803), it did improve a little bit so it could be related to superfetch after all.

Live tiles contention (since introduction of live tiles in Windows 8)
When you first log in, the PC's RAM is empty, and SuperFetch starts filling it with cacheable items. But animated "live tiles" on the Start menu have to share the HDD's seeking with SuperFetch and update.
Which is why I removed all of them from the Start menu, although I'm not sure it actually does anything... I'd think turning off all the Windows 10 advertisements with regedit would speed it up too, but Windows updates always revert the setting. :(
