I think your OC settings are too high. If it keeps shutting down, read up some reviews first of your cpu before you OC it. That is if you have another pc of course.

Check out this guide :

It is, in my opinion, the best one out there. Way simpler, and the explanations are better, than the one on Tom's Hardware.
I've got a i7-920 overclocked to 4.2GHz, idle temps 38-45°C, load temps with Intel Burn Test at Maximum : 78-86°C.
But be careful with your overclock...if you haven't got an after-market cooler, keep a very close eye on your temps !

Hope this helped,
