I'm having issues with my Crucial M4 128GB randomly locking up. No BSOD, just a hard freeze that requires a reboot. It seems to happen randomly, sometimes after a few days of uptime, sometimes after just a few hours. Running 070H firmware. Any ideas?

Nothing looks to be wrong in that smart info.
What makes you suspect the m4 over the hard drive that has a warning?

Have you tried testing other hardware? This is good: http://www.ocbase.com/
I'm not saying its not the drive its just it looks fine in SMART and I'm wondering what makes you think it is? Are you suffering any data loss of I/O or CRC errors? Or did the issue only occur after fitting the SSD or?

I'll give that tool a shot.
Yeah, I started having this issue after switching over to using the SSD for my OS. I'm not suffering any data loss or anything, just the occasional random lockup. A restart fixes it, but it can be annoying if I'm working on something at the time.
Will report back

Ran tests with tool. No crashes from that. Got another freeze, and after rebooting from that got another one ~10 seconds after boot.
Any suggestions? I could give a full format of the disc and a re-install of Windows a shot.

Did you check system event viewer are there any errors entries that could help you troubleshoot this issue?

Event viewer just gives me the generic Kernel-Power 41 error. I'm going to re-install my OS on a different drive to see if the same freezing issues show themselves. Will report back.

No problem. Since I have had similar issue with my other Marvell controlled SSD I was going to suggest LPM registry fix for you... You could try it prior OS reinstallation.
It is described here however I have had to apply it not only to:
That would be in case you use Intel RST AHCI driver.
You could also check some BIOS power settings in case there would be available for you.
