Windows 7: System freeze.

System freeze.


I've recently built my P.C. and have installed Windows 7 Ultimate. For some reason every hour or two the system freezes for around 10 seconds, I can still move the mouse but programmes e.t.c. become unresponsive. I have all of the latest drivers and believe that my BIOS is setup correctly. My system specs are:

-Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz Socket 1155 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor

-Corsair 120GB Force 3 SSD 2.5" SATA-III 6Gb/s Read = 550MB/s, Write = 510MB/s

-Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCU II 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDM Out PCI-E Graphicas Card

-Corsair Vengeance Performance Memory Module 8gb (2x4gb) Ddr3 1866mhz Cl9 Unbuffered Dimm

-Coolermaster Centurion 5 II SPECIAL EDITION with Red Interior - With Coolermaster 650W GX PSU

-Asus P8Z68-V PRO Z68 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard

I've run MEMTEST and the results were perfect, I've also used HDtune to test the SSD, the health test came back fine but the benchmark test looked erratic to me.
As I'm typing this a critical message has flashed up saying my SSD is running at 128 degrees!

noticing that you are in fact using a ssd, I have to ask if you have checked with the manufacturer for firmware updates for the ssd?
