Default Problems since installing a SSD

Here are my system specs:
Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
CPU
Intel Core i5 4670K @ 3.40GHz 25 C
Haswell 22nm Technology
RAM
8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 800MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard
ASRock Z87 Extreme4 (CPUSocket) 29 C
Graphics
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (EVGA) 26 C
Storage
111GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB ATA Device (SSD) 28 C
931GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 ATA Device (SATA) 26 C
465GB Seagate ST3500418AS ATA Device (SATA) 25 C
Optical Drives
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NSB0 ATA Device

So since installing the SSD above I've been having various problems. I cloned the HDD I was using for Windows and League of Legends to the SSD using Macrium Reflect. And the SSD is now set to be the first loaded.
Since then I've been having the following problems...
USB ports randomly stopping and starting. Happened to my Linksys receiver first, then my mouse port. No others have had the problem yet.
Random crashes. I went afk to make dinner and came back to a black screen. The monitor wasn't off... just all black. Tried unplugging and plugging it back in; stayed the same. Was playing Diablo 3 and FPS dropped to almost 0 and lagged some, then it said I was disconnected and I tried to click okay, but it was frozen... mouse still moved but couldn't alt tab to desktop or alt+ctrl+del. Then screen went black after a minute or so and stayed that way until I powered down the computer.

Anyone have any idea what could be going on?

If that doesn't work, do a fresh install. Sounds like a perfect example of a bad clone.

Wait, why do you have 8GB of single channel? You only running one stick?

Do you have the sticks staggered? That should be dual channel.
