Extremely frustrating Freeze on BRAND NEW system

I really have no idea what to do here. I'm so incredibly frustrated, but I really need help. Please help me guys.

I was having some serious freezes with my old Win 7 Install. It wouldn't load up in full on any mode except pure Safe Mode. When it did load up, or was during the loadup phase, it would freeze 99% of the time. I tried a ton of things and none of them worked. So I got fed up and decided to just build a new PC.

The first part that I got was an SSD. So I decided to do an experiment on my old system, and installed Windows 7 onto this new SSD. Booted off the SSD and poof, no more freezes. That uplifted my spirits quite a bit, but I was going to make a new system, so I didnt hold onto that for much longer. Soon after that I got the rest of my parts. List here:

SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 128 GB
CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
PSU: Corsair HX750

So I was replacing pretty much EVERYTHING. But I was keeping my old storage volumes. Next up, I booted up my system, and that wouldn't work with the Win7 install from before on my SSD. So I decided to just format my SSD, install a new Win7 system, and go on with my life.

First it froze while finalizing the installation. Next it started freezing while browsing my old volumes. It froze when I was trying to install my new chipset drivers. It froze constantly over and over, on bootup as it did on my previous computer. So I reinstalled Windows 7 over and over while removing my old storage volumes, until I eventually just said F' it and kept only the SSD. Formatted that in the Windows 7 Install, and reinstalled again. Constantly froze the installation over and over, until it started working. But the freezes still have been continuing, just at extremely sporadic rates. I tried updating my BIOS, I tried changing my ram timings from 1600 MHz to 1866MHz in the Bios, updating the timings in both channels to match the memory. (I have ram installed in the 1 and 2 channels. Not adjacent but matching color DIMMS). I tried 1 stick of ram, alternating between both sticks...reinstalls. everything. Just freezes, BSODs, Crashes, even some Green Screen garbling with colors, just...bugs over and over without fail. I just don't know what to do. I worked on it for literally 9 hours straight, and nothing.

It's a brand new system,brand new everything. I don't know what to do. Can anyone...help me?

    I would run your ssd through some tests, could just be dead out of the box. Make sure your cpu is locked in as well. Try plugging your ssd into a different computer and run sea tools on it.
