Windows 7: Burn In Stress Test Hard Freeze on 7th hour

Burn In Stress Test Hard Freeze on 7th hour

I experienced a hard screen lock while stress testing my machine over night. The image to the screen was frozen. Mouse didn't move. System was unresponsive. Windows System Log for the freeze time was empty with no Errors or Critical Notices. I would like some comments please on what could have been the cause. Also, I would appreciate advice on how to resolve it so it doesn't happen on the next stress test.

RealTemp showed lowest core temperature at 32C, highest core temperature at 64C, average core temperature 56C on load
Afterburner showed GPU full load temp steady at 60C
Prime95 - All cores appear to have reached seventh hour of testing before the freeze. The last thing I see on the screen is:
"Self-Test 2800K Passed" and then about two minutes after that, the freeze seemed to have occurred while testing next set.
