I overclocked my CPU - it works 99% of the time but every once in a while my PC crashes/fails

I overclocked my CPU and my PC works fine most of the time. However, every once in a while the computer crashes or when starting my PC it fails and I get an error screen that says Overclocking Failed! It is a rare occurrence.

As it works 99% of the time, should I continue as it is or should I be concerned about this occasional failure?

Thanks!

    It's unstable so lower the oc. Running on an unstable oc is not recommended and can cause bigger and bigger issues the longer it goes on.

  3. Try to raise VCore just a tiny bit and see if it helps.
