A simple test would be to open the Task Manager and the the Resource Monitor and check which process hit's 100% CPU usage at the freeze....
That'll help you diagnose whats going on in the system and when.....
Try it and let us know...... NOD32 ain't worth installing in any system
High time you updated the firmware of the SSD.
And with an SSD always remember to keep it clean of data fragments the SSD manufacturer will have a specific program to optimize that SSD for you.
Plus, keep the firmware upto date since they all seem to have some problem every now and then.
I'd suggest trying to plug the SSD into another rig as a secondary Disc and then updating it. At the same time you'll also come to know whether it's dead or still working.
You can use a free tool like SSDLife for checking the drive status too. And remember to change the pagefile location from the SSD to the other HDD when you get the system up and running.
