Sounds heat related, try reseting the clocks to normal and see what happens not really much need to overclock it, if it still happens monitor the temps and see what they are if they are going to be a problem if they are fine its something else come back and we can try something else.

on the off chance that this isn't a thermal problem

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.
