1. Mem Diagnostics - passed, no issues detected
2. checkdsk - passed, though hung for 2 hours on phase 4 (since I was doing a check on a 256 GB OCZ Vertex 4 this was a bit disconcerting. Usually I only see that long of time spent on very large drives 1TB or greater)
3. sfc / scannow: passed, 100% verified
4. did not have enough time last night to run this, but I will tonight.
Unfortunately, after the checkdisk, the machine auto-restarted and told me there was an issue recognizing my 1 TB data drive. It started a checkdisk on its own, but immediately froze on the starting screen.
All in all, I am guessing that my venerable 1 TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 is finally biting the dust. I noticed that the majority of the issues I found were when I was watching a video that was stored on my data drive. I am going to try grabbing all the data off it. I will see how the SSD does without the data drive attached, and if everything is kosher, I will wipe the data drive clean, throw it back into the system, and see how we do.
