Could my video card possibly be dying...?

So, I have my Geforce Gt 530 (2 GB model) overclocked 120-140+ the stock on the core and memory. I have never seen the temperature exceed 70 Degrees Celsius, and I keep the fan at 80% along with a small fan outside my PC pointing toward it. A week ago it went back to the stock settings, and MSI Afterburner still said that it was at my clock settings i set it to before, but i knew for a fact it was on stock. I restarted my PC, and it fixed the problem... but does this mean my video card is slowly, but surely dying? Thank you

It was probably a software bug. As long as you don't see artifacts or anything your should be fine.

Yea, no artifacts. I know my limit. Could it die after a while if i have it overclocked...?

If your temperature or voltage is too high, it could. Otherwise it should be fine.

Yea, it wont let me control the voltage, and the temp has never exceeded 70 degrees C. Could anything else have happened, because the problem has happened a second time... and i have realized its not going to stock, its going as low as the clock settings can go...

Do you mean it is staying at idle clocks even when running 3d applications?
At this point I would try reinstalling afterburner and the NVidia drivers. It may be a problem with the card but it is best not to jump to conclusions early on.
