Random freezes on new custom config pc

Hello everyone!

I joined this forum becouse I'm getting hopeless in my situation here. My problem is that my pc freezes randomly on my new config. I changed my mobo, CPU, video card and RAM. Here is my system config:

Asrock 980DE3/U3S3 motherboard
AMD FX 4130 Black Edition (3.8/3.9GHz) CPU
Asus GT620-1GD3-L video card
Geil 2x2GHz Dual Channel Memory (DDR3) 1333MHz
550W PSU
Seagate hard drive with IDE connection (set to master)
LG DVD drive with IDE connection (set to slave)

Here are some of the possible solutions which I already tried:
- resetting CMOS
- updating BIOS
- looking for shorts in the casing
- updating all possible drivers
- memtest (no problems)
- running hard drive in IDE and AHCI modes (same freezes)
- re-installing windows 7
- checking temperatures (no overheat on any components)

There was like 2-3 times when system said this error message during booting: CMOS checksum bad. That's why I tried resetting CMOS. Also there is a strange boot message which says "Can't find any device". I'm not sure what this means but don't suspect it to be the couse of my problem. Any help would be appreciated but honestly I don't have the possibility to try to change some of the components I have, so please don't recommend that.
Have a nice day, thank you for reading my thread.

Edit: I can add one more information which may be sufficient: freezes usually happen during processes which require my PC to achieve higher performance such as HD videos, custom "CPU-eater" installers etc.

The 620 "VideoCard" is not enough even for 720p video watching. My old PC had 620 "video card" and it played videos on 480p and freezes and etc. Update the card ( not the 630, the same shit ) to 650 ot 7790 or 650ti. And can you please tell me the PSU brand?

Its brand is M-Tech. And I don't really think 620 isn't enough since my old graphics card was an MSI 220 and I could play 720p and 1080p videos without lag or crashes. By the way I maybe found the solution. I had one activity which almost always coused freezing: starting up Might and Magic: Heroes 6 (i think maybe the HD intro) so I could test on launching if my PC freezes. Now I disabled USB 3 Legacy Support in BIOS and it seems like my problem is finally solved (after weeks of trying). I'll update the thread if I'm wrong. Thank you for the answer!

OK so I still have the problem. USB 3 Legacy support option wasn't the source. I also made a full virus diagnostics in the meantime with negative results. The random freezes keep happening. Any suggestions?
