That's the fun of overclocking... what seems stable might not really be. Essentially, if you are overclocking at -all-, it makes sense that it can handle a true stress, else the overclock is for nothing other than e-peen growth. I used to have a high OC but it failed under a video encode, so I just went back to stock lol. No sense running it at extra power when there's no actual gain.
