Driving me nuts

Ok, I have overclocked my CPU to 3.9GHz and my GPU to 710MHz. Once a week it will freeze! (Black screen, looping audio, needs restart)

I have tested and tested my CPU again and again, also with my RAM tested and tested, my GPU tested.

I do not understand, could my mobo be overheating? I am just at a total loss of why it does this. I know it isn't software, cause just know when it did it I pushed the reset button, which stopped the looping audio but it still sat at a black screen. Only until I turned it off and back on did it boot. Meaning that rules out the gfx card. I guess I will just have to run Prime for 24hrs...... what do you guys think?

Well, I ran prime and it bombed...... thats what I get for using other OC Stressing programs I guess (really hate Prime95)

Gonna have to tough it out and redo everything using Prime. :'(  Thanks for the help though.

LoL, thats what I used! And both passed with flying colors.

But that doesn't insure a 24/7 stable OC like Prime does unfortunately....

In my experience, it is one of two things:

1. Thermal shutdown from too much heat.
2. Improper timing on RAM settings.

I've run systems that were NOT "prime stable" beyond 4 hours, and have had no problems with them, although they did eventually crash under prime.

Prime is getting oooooold... there are other better ways to test for stability.
