Question: Why is MBP so slow despite 500GB SSD/16GB RAM?

Hi Everybody. Since the software update from El Capitan to high Sierra my MacBook Pro (mid 2012) is running incredibly slow. So I exchanged my 4GB RAM for 16GB and my 500gb mechanical drive for a 500gb SAMSUNG SSD.

Why is my MBP still slow (slower than ever)? THE FAN IS ALWAYS RUNNING AT MAX SPEED. Heres the EtreCheck report:
