PC Keeps freezing. Possibly a dying HDD (?)

Now though, after it's on atleast half the day, It will decide to completely freeze. Hard drive light is off, mouse cursor is froze, and any music playing while it freezes will sound loop.
Can't just restart it either. After restarting and logging back on, 10 minutes later it will freeze again. Not completely, but the mouse cursor will freeze every once in awhile if you try to do anything, I tried switching users (Ment to log off) but whent the display turned off (this is normal in my experience) it didn't turn back on. The onyl real way to stop the freezing for awhile is shutting the PC off via PSU switch for awhile, then cutting everything back on.
At this point, I dunno what to do. Already replace one hard drive thinking it was the main problem and it turns out it was mostly, but this bullshit is still happening. Any Ideas?

I lowered the voltage on my CPU down a notch, and the freeze happened faster. I then went back into the bios and bumped it up. Now the freezing still occurs, but it's not "Permanent", It freezes still but it only last for a few seconds.
I Always thought that if you had the voltage too high or low your PC would just bluescreen. Guess I was wrong.
I'll continue to check to see if this is indeed 100% the cause of the freezes.

On a side note, I haven't had any freezes lately, and It's been about 4 hours.

I don't overclock. I probably have more PC then I really need and since I don't max out on CPU processing and don't have lag issues, I don't see the need. I keep everything stock levels for reliability. For all the headaches I had in the past with overclocking and issues people have with it, I just keep everything right out of the box stock. I think the only thing I changed up was some software settings on my SSD.
