XFX 5870
Antec Quattro 850w

The weird thing is, every time i reach a stable OC (tested by 2hr+ prime95 and 2 pass memtest86) then after i shut off the computer and turn it back on 12 hours later the OC would fail. Also i notice the temperature would drop significantly from (50 -> 42) from startup. This phenomenon has happened over 5 times already. Sometimes the computer would be perfectly stable for couple of weeks then one day out of no where it fails. Also i noticed sometimes when after OC failed, if i shut off the computer and turn it back on it would miraculously fix itself. I really don't know what is going on. Any input is appreciated.

I start considering an OC stable after 8 - 12hrs of Orthos, not 2hrs.

Bottom line, in my opinion, is that your OC was never stable to begin with.
