I just moved to a SSD this weekend as an upgrade figuring that the performance was worth the price. At first I thought that it was working fine, then it started freezing when opening and closing applications. Some forums mentioned RAM problems, but I built this computer only a year ago and have 8GB of RAM, which leads me to believe that there is another culprit.

It is a samsung 830 256GB ssd. I also have two hard drives in RAID0 for more storage. I am led to t

Specs:

Intel Core i5 2500k
8GB Corsair RAM
3 Hard Drives (above)
EVGA GTX 670 FTW
Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 MOBO
750W Cooler Master GX PSU

There weren't a lot of good threads about this happening, so I was wondering how knowledeable people were with this issue.

Update the firmware on your drive to version CXM03B1Q and see if that helps.
Also probably wouldn’t hurt to update your motherboard’s BIOS to version to U1h.

Okay, I'll give that a try.

I am at the latest update for both now. It holds up a little better, but now freezes with the spinning loading icon up, and is stuck there. I have reinstalled windows multiple times, not sure what to do now.

Your motherboard has 4 SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports. Is your SSD connected to one of the 2 Intel 6Gb/s ports (SATA3_0 or SATA3_1)?

Yes, the SSD is currently in Port 0, Bluray Drive in Port 1. I am not currently using the Marvell ports, but I have continued to have freezing issues despite doing this and deactivating it altogether. Everything is AHCI, currently testing the drive in a laptop to see if the drive is really the problem.
