Computer randomly freezes

I just built my first ever PC over a few months ago, and it suddenly started freezing last month. Whenever it does that I just have to restart it. I've just about had it, so I decided to ask you guys.
My built is:
Intel Core i5 3570
8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
P8H61-M LE R2.0 (LGA1155)
GeForce GTS 450
466GB Hitachi HDP725050GLA360 ATA

I've noticed that whenever it freezes, it the light on the case for HDD stops flashing.
What should I do?

    Sounds like hdd problem.try a different hdd or try ur hdd in another system.
  2. Open the "Computer" window
    Right-click on the drive in question
    Select the "Tools" tab
    In the Error-checking area, click <Check Now>.
  3. Okay I did both of these, and even did a memory test and nothing helped
