    My mbp has been slow recently. Just did a fresh install last week. It takes two bounces for apps used to take one Jump. My mbp was hot today. Is it TRIM? Or is it the other HDD?

    That could be it. Ambient temp is high.

    You mean, that the slowness was a result of your room being 32° C? If so, the answer is no.
    Have you looked at the tips/hints?

    No need to reinstall if you use the tools in post #2 to determine the problem. If not, then a reinstall might work for a week or so, depending on your computational habits. With the tools given you in post number 2 (also check for Page Outs / Swap Used in Activity Monitor), you should be either eliminate the problem or determine the problem.

    Did both a fresh install and followed post #2seems alot better. I also think doing a fresh install is good after any hardware change

    If you're swapping out a motherboard in a PC, I understand this. But on an Apple laptop, you're pretty limited on what hardware changes are available. I don't see a good reason to reinstall your OS due to a RAM upgrade. A fresh install on a new SSD may be a good idea, simply because I've heard of problems when cloning from a HDD to a SSD.
