Overclock my card 850/1000 with stock voltage..
Everything went well 1 hour with 3dmark06 and
online/offline games for hours..But,whenever I play youtube or anything related
to flash player I got BSOD..Does that mean my OC isn't stable?

i have got BSODs sometime too when watching youtube videos while OCed, turning the GPU to stock fixes it.

its strange because my OC is stable and all. i think its something with the drivers or maybe because the idle clock is significantly higher if OCed.

Take a close look at what your clocks are doing while watching that youtube video. I know for my 5850, it drops the clocks to 400/900. Stock is 765/1125, and my overclock is 950/1300. For some reason youtube (I havent checked other flash sources) really messes with the GPU clocks.

Personally, I have not seen any decreased stability.
