An hour is no where near long enough to determine whether an OC is stable or not. Run IBT or Prime for a few hours.

What is your OC? (Voltages and clocks, and do as Pyroflea suggests).

Chances are it's the RAM. I'm no expert but I'm guessing that "stress test" you did was not stressing RAM.

I have my RAM (1600mhz CL8 1.65V) currently set to (177x8) 1416mhz CL7 1.65V. I tried running 180x8=1440mhz CL7 but couldn't get stable... until I bumped RAM voltage up to 1.68V. I thought everything was cool and then a week or two later, my RAM was only showing up as 2.8gb (out of 8gb installed). By dropping the clock and voltage down to my current values, voila, stability and working right. Basically I'm guessing your RAM right now is on the verge of instability and will need more voltage - however, the problem I encountered (not all RAM showing up) can occur to you too.

Just a guess but seeing 1442mhz RAM, that would be my guess.

1442 from 1333 is a pretty big difference, I agree with Wolf, i'm pretty sure its the ram as well. Though just personal opinion, :p  I've really only OC'd AMD BE cpu's because there cheap with unlocked multi.

I agree ram most likely run prime 95 blend test or just lower the RAM speed and see what happens.

LinX or IBT also are a good ram superstress.
