Computer Randomly Freezes

For the first 4 months after I built my PC, and for the past month, my computer would/will randomly freeze. Nothing works, and I have to use my restart button to restart my computer to fix it. The interval between the freezes varies anywhere from once in a 10 day period to a couple times in one day. I thought this may have been caused by video drivers, since the problem had fixed itself over time initially and I hadn't encountered it in over a year. But this doesn't seem correct since the problem persisted over this past month even after rolling back my video drivers to a version that I was using while the problem was not present. Nothing appears in the event log when I start my computer back up, other than an error about power being cut from the restart. Any ideas as to what might be causing this, and any possible fixes?

Specs:
Intel Core i5 2500k OC'd to 4.32 GHz
GIGABYTE GA-Z68P-DS3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 ATX Motherboard
Coolermaster Hyper 212+ CPU Heatsink

Western Digital Caviar Blue 640GB Program Drive
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB Data Drive
Corsair TX850 v2 PSU
Coolermaster HAF 932 Advanced Full Tower Case
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

EDIT: Forgot basic information.

Hard to know without any sort of error/warning. I would start by updating all your drivers and doing your updates. If the problem is still there after that, Try running a memory test to see if your memory is okay. without any more details.... its all I can think of for now.

Could be a failing hdd or a bad overclock. Does setting the cpu to stock fix it?

Leave it to me to completely overlook this. I'll do that now. If my computer doesn't freeze again in the next 2 weeks, I'll greatly thank you, and probably cuss myself out.
