Computer freezing-could ssd/storage be the problem?

I built my own pc last year, and made the mistake of ordering a 64gb drive for my C. I am now out of space, and over the last week, my computer will freeze up after 30-40 minutes of use. the windows I have open are unresponsive (mouse cursor still works), and the only way I can shut down is the manual switch.

Could the lack of space on the c drive be my issue? I updated the video drivers, and still have the problem.

I just ordered a new 128gb to replace the original and plan to swap them over the weekend, but figured I'd check to see if this has happened before.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Running windows 7 pro 64
asus p8p67 deluxe mb

crucial 64gb ssd sataIII (my C:) 
crucial 128 gb ssd sataIII (active files)
WD 500gb HDD (storage)

Do you update the firmware to 000F version?

Because after about 5000hr use, some M4 will freeze or BSOD, go to crucial site to download and updte the firmware.

Thanks for that. After I posted this, I went to their website and looked at the firmware. I was hoping that might be the case. Need to increase space anyway, so I am going to wait for my new drive (a Samsung), and when that is up and running, update the 64gb and use for additional storage.


thanks!
