I personally don't recommend that you overclock a PC, but recognise that
there are people who do and it is their perogative and they do it at their
own risk. You state that you had run your system with the other graphics card
whilst overclocking the CPU and that you had no problems. It could be that
you need to check a setting in your BIOS (check your motherboard manual).
Look for a setting that allows you to lock the PCIE bus frequency.
Alternatively, this might be controlled by a jumper on your motherboard.
Again, check the manual. It is possible that your other graphics card was
more tolerant of bus frequency changes than your current one is, and locking
the bus to its standard frequency should help. If it does, and you wish to
overclock your system again, do so in small steps and thoroughly test it
before increasing the frequency further. Repeat until you start getting
errors or other symptoms and then back the frequency down to the last stable
setting. It is also possible that the 'fault' could have been caused by the
graphics card not being seated correctly in its socket.
