The only other idea I can come up with is to put the SSD as a ready boost, and to use it for your temp files and such for windows and your programs. But this may require you to partition that drive into 2 separate ones. This would keep the HDD from getting fragmented so much from the constant temp files being written and erased off of it. Also speed up the system in general because SSD's operate faster. again just an off the wall idea.

Seeing that you're only a few days out on that recent Windows 7 re-install perhaps you could try more trouble shooting to eliminate the problem-- install Windows 7 directly on the SSD to see if the problem persists. If it does you will know a different piece of hardware is to blame. If it doesn't you can suspect it's the mechanical Samsung drive.
This really shouldn't even be an issue on your fairly modern system running Windows 7. It smells like a hardware problem.
If you can return the SSD I highly recommend the Seagate Momentus XT line of hybrid drives-- currently on sale at Newegg for $69.99 on the 500gb model. You will get amazingly fast Windows boots and pretty quick software start up on your most frequently used applications plus a good amount of storage all in a single drive.
