Since I have never heard of your PSU it's probably junk. It's a problem even if it's not your current issue.

I would go into the BIOS and set the RAM to 1333Mhz and see if that helps. Generally we recommend 1.5V RAM for these builds.

How often does it freeze?

Is there anything that you can do that will make it freeze every time?
