so sometimes when i surf the net my pc randomly freezes i cant press nothing i need to press the button of my case to restart my pc.
could it be the ssd?

If you SSD causes the freeze, you should still be able to move the mouse around and do some of the things which do not require drive access. Is it the case?
If so, It is possible that it is caused by the drive. If you can't even move your mouse cursor. It is something else.

Run for a while with all your settings at stock (IE no overclock) and see if the issue persists. If the issue goes away then it's your overclock at fault. If the issue remains then you can start to isolate the hardware that is causing the issue. It could be the SSD but from the information you've given so far there's no reason to suspect it any more than all your other parts.

When my SSD randomly started dying it was a complete freeze.

Moving the mouse writes to the OS drive to record stuff. Soo... what he is explaining I don't think is possible.

I had the same problem, upping the CPU voltage a notch fixed it. But since you are Prime95 stable for 11+hrs, I'm not sure ..

Well if the SSD hangs, your computer will not hang instantly. It will only freeze when it will try to access data from the drive. If your mouse cursor doesn't even move, it is unlikely to be the SSD. I've had a few SSD related failures (Bad RAID card, Bad SATA cables etc...) and have never gotten it to the point where the screen completely freezes.
