If you have an Overclock then the 1st thing I would do is set everything back to stock settings. As a general rule I think this should be the first thing to do. Trying to trouble shoot a problem while you are running an OC which may or may not be stable is not a good idea. I would also test your RAM. I think memtest may be a decent program, or prime 95 maybe. Leave everything at stock speeds, CPU & GPU, and see if you can pass memtest / Prime 95.

I actually never overclocked my system, figured it wasn't necessary, if it happened then something caused it to do it lol cause it sure wasn't me... will take a look and see what I can find.
Ran Prime95 last night, passed all tests with no errors at all (ran the optimal tests for stress tests)
You may have been 100% correct on the overclock... for some reason in my BIOS it was set to 103... restored it back to default (not sure how it got changed in the first place) and placed it back in auto and seems to be working fine again... will continue to monitor closely tonight and if it seems to be solved, well then case closed. If it is indeed fixed, thank you and to everyone else who helped a thank you to you as well!
