Im using the following parts:
Corsair VX-450 Power Supply
Intel Core i3 540
G.Skill F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3
Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3 Mini-ITX Motherboard
Samsung EcoGreen F4 2TB HD204UI
Lian Li PC-Q11 Black Aluminium HTPC Case USB3.0
All the above including the ssd are brand new.
Are there any settings that i am missing for thee ssd that would cause freezes like this?

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc


Here are my solutions to freezing, and an excellent article, which I hope is of some help
Go to search type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers
Download and run malwarebytes, a full scan after you update
Run antivirus scan
Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
If overclocking, restore to original
Test hard drive at company website.
Test in safe mode, does it still happen?
Try with clean boot..
Hopefully, something will work
