Yeah, I tried again in safe mode and it was the same, so I downloaded the pro portable version (didn't pay, just clicked the pro link) and it tells me:
Drive health is EXCELLENT!
Work time: 7006 hrs, powered on 1025 times, TRIM supported and enabled, 96% health, estimated lifetime is 8 years

I bought it around February 2012 but it was used, I can't remember how long the previous owner said they'd had it to be honest. Using the 040H firmware now, though this issue happened before on my Gigabyte motherboard using the firmware before that.
Also, it's been running in safe mode with networking for a while now (10 minutes?
) and it appears to be alright.
EDIT: Well, like I said I had this issue on my old board too, and this one was brand new. I'm not saying that rules out the board but it would be awful luck if it was the board. And thanks for the link, I'll check that out.
EDIT 2: Crystal confirmed the 96% figure (assume that's from SMART) and said the health was GOOD, then the system hung. So safe mode does not fix it. Next up: unplugging all drives but the SSD.
EDIT 3 (lol): I only have on SATA device plugged in and it is the SSD in one of the 6Gb/s ports. It's hung again. I'm going to try it in one of the 3Gb/s ports, and then take a look at the linked guide to solving the bootmgr issue. Oh btw, I ran the Windows repair utility thing from the DVD, and it said it couldn't find any issues.
