Computer Freezing

I am having trouble with my computer freezing/hanging when it is on the Desktop. It usually happens when I am trying to download an update/driver for a device then everything becomes unresponsive and I have to perform a hard reset. I have been running test on all my parts besides the Optical drive. Also a phenomenon is occurring in which my CPU is running at 5.1GHz. I don't know how to overclock nor do I wish to start. Is there a  way to throttle this down to its intended range? Also could a bent pin on the CPU be the problem with the freezing/hanging? It fell in fine when I put it into the slot.

 

My System:

SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0

AMD FX-9590

16GB of RAM

2TB HDD

2 x MSI RX 480 GAMING X 8GB

Corsair H100i V2

1x Optical Drive

Windows 7 64-bit
