Windows 7: Odd PC Problem Hard Freezes Even After Replacing Parts

Odd PC Problem Hard Freezes Even After Replacing Parts

Ok so this is the strangest computer problem ever. I bought new custom computer a year ago and on the 2nd day it had hard freezes to where the screen is frozen, mouse, keyboard and power buttons do not work, and the computer has to be unplugged from the wall to work again. These freezes occur anywhere from a once a week to a few times a day. I did a bunch of troubleshoots, did a windows reinstall, swapped the cables and that didn't fix it so one by one I replaced/upgraded the PSU and Ram, and recently swapped the Motherboard and CPU. The computer is basically new again now.
The only thing I didn't swap was the Samsung Evo 840 SSD because it was working fine another computer.
After all of this it just froze again.
My temps are fine, Bios has been updated, and all of the drivers and firmware.
Please help if you can.

Intel i7 3770k
Asus H61m-a
Corsair CS550m
G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB
Samsung Evo 840

You can just get a second hand small HDD for pretty cheap (or perhaps borrow from a friend) to swap with the SSD and see if it is indeed the SSD causing freezes. Image with Macrium free so OS stays the same, trying this one.
