Can "Asus Suite ii" cause BSOD?

Hello everybody. This is my first post, so i don't know if this is even in the right category. :??:

Here's my PC specs.

CPU: I7 3770K 3.5/3.9
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Extreme
RAM: 4x4gb Corsair Dominator Platinum
GPU: Saphire HD 7870 2GB
Soundcard: Asus HDAV 1.3 Deluxe
PSU: Corsair AX750watt
Chassis: Coolermaster HAF X
SSD: Corsair Force GT 240GB
HDD: x2 1TB SATA Seagates / x1 2TB SATA Seagate / x1 320GB SATA Seagate
Watercooling: Corsair H100

I have finished building my PC yesterday, installed Windows 7, installed drivers and the Asus Suite ii.
Then i tried to OC my CPU with the Asus suite iis' TurboV EVO (CPU Level Up). I OC'd my CPU to 4.2ghz then to 4.4ghz. (That's the settings it gave me). Temperature was 29 to 35 Celsius.
Then after about an hour (don't know really) i got a BSOD (got BSOD twice. PC just restarted. In event viewer the error description was "Blue Screen") Is this because of the program, is the program reliable? Or is it a hardware fault? I really do hope it's not. Do I need to uninstall Asus Suite ii? Is manually OC better than software OC? Can anyone help me with this, it will be much appreciated.

Thank you
